Lauren Battiste had been writing steamy romance and erotica for years as a hobby under the pen name "RaLa" when she finally decided to go pro. Reborn under her new monicker, Lauren's work reaches out and touches countless new readers through Steam Books Erotica & Romance as well her own independent publishing. Lauren especially loves to explore the burning passion in interracial exchanges.
A native of Michigan, Lauren holds a degree in Business Administration, but we think she's even better at administering visions of love and lust into her readers' imaginations.

Out of print for almost thirty years—due largely to initial audiences’ rejection of its strong black female protagonist—Hurston’s classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.
