Minette Lauren

As soon as Minette Lauren was old enough to write, she composed a play in one act about the love of Seth and Beth, inspired by the movie, Gone with the Wind. Not deterred by the play’s questionable success, she has been in love with writing ever since. She travels often and takes advantage of anyplace with a view that inspires her to write. Lauren now resides in Texas, where she co-writes with good friend Zoe Tasia under the pen name, Zari Reede. Lauren loves to write outdoors by her pool, with her five furry writing muses.


Zoe Tasia

Zari Reede is a writing team consisting of Zoe Tasia and Minette Lauren. Both have an addiction to collaborative writing that rivals Oreo Double Stuffed cookies with fine champagne. Writing solo for years, they decided to engage in a writing exercise to strengthen their skills and enlighten their creative minds. Zoe lives in Houston, has one cat, two boys, and a priceless husband, who supports all her rebel dreams.
