#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino sat down with author Lauren Pizza to discuss the interesting background into her new book “Meant to Be: The Lives and Loves of a Jersey Girl”. The story behind this book might shock you!
Two years ago Lauren went to a palm reader who told her she needed to start developing her writing. The reading confused Lauren because she had never really written before, but when Lauren got home she started writing. “Long story short, I wrote a book”.
Lauren tells #HipNJ that when she was thirteen years old she had a near-death experience when she was caught underneath a sailboat. “My soul left me,” she says. After she was rescued she knew it was meant to be she didn’t die. In her book, “Meant to Be” Lauren chose to write about her loving husband and family she was able to have.
To Lauren there is no such thing as coincidence in life and “we are where we are for a reason”. You can find Lauren’s book at your local Barnes & Noble or Amazon.com. Don’t hesitate to check it out!
