/ / ABOUT \ \

Lauren Olivia Valenza, or the more preferred, “Lo Valenza”, is a South Bay resident, side-hustlin’Β blogger, animal lover, elliptical hater, Taco Bell junkie, and author.

XXII is her first novel (the first of theΒ many, she hopes).

She resides in the town that Bukowski is buried in with her big, blended Italian family, her fine-ass husband, and sweet furbaby, Synyster.

And if you’re ever wondering if she’s writing about you, you’re probably right.
