The Problem With Pajamas AUTHOR PHOTO.jpg

Hi! I'm Lauren Stohler (rhymes with stroller)! I write and illustrate books with my husband, Gareth! We live in Connecticut, where we take walks, play games, and eat a lot of chocolate.


Before writing books, I unloaded trucks, puppeteered, served coffee, cleaned movie theaters, worked in a wood shop, and drew lots and lots of pugs (you can see my pugs at, or @inkpug on social media)!

For all things literary, I am represented by Thao Le!
