For this demo, we are using this best-selling author Lauren Wilson @BougieAfro
Lauren Wilson has been writing poetry and prose off and on for over 40 years, beginning with a series of poems to commemorate a cousin who passed away at age 19. She finds inspiration for her stories from a muse, an inner voice that propels her to put thoughts and emotions into words. When she isn’t writing, she uses her engineering background to work as a safety consultant, assessing machines and robotics in preparation for sale to European companies. Lauren is married to Howard Wilson; they have one dog, Petey and live in Brooklyn, MD – south of Baltimore. Lauren and Howard also have five precious nieces who provide much fulfillment and joy. In her spare time, Lauren is working on a labor of love – a 5 story miniature apartment building, filled with African-American art. She has been a proud member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. since 2004.
Lauren and Howard Wilson have been married for nearly 20 years. Howard proposed on their second date on a New Year’s Eve while slow dancing in front of the fireplace. Two years later, they said “I do” in a courthouse in Greensboro, NC, then drove 7 hours to Maryland to have a wedding celebration with Lauren’s family. Lauren and Howard moved to Maryland a year later with two cats and a dog so that Lauren could spend time with her 80+ mother in her last years. Over the years, they have faced the normal marital challenges, with a single-minded belief in the sanctity of marriage. After 20 years, they still find joy in each other’s company. For date night, they stream every good comic they can find, or head to the movies at Bengie’s Drive In. Their favorite vacation spot is Cove Haven Poconos Resort in Pennsylvania, competing in air hockey and ping-pong, feeding the deer, playing bar games and enjoying nights out. When the weather is nice, they walk their pitbull, Petey, in the park. With any luck, they hope to see another 20 years.
