BIOGRAPHY I began writing at an early age. While in grade school, I was the recipient of two Young Author Awards (1994, 1997). In high school, I became the only freshman member of the yearbook staff where I took my own photographs and wrote stories about the happenings at Freeburg High.

I went on to receive my Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications-Print Journalism from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. While there, I earned the Outstanding Student in Journalism award in 2006. I am the former Editor of The Fairview Heights Tribune as well as the Clinton County News in Mascoutah, IL.

I have written numerous articles and feature stories that have been included in the above mentioned papers as well as The Freeburg Tribune and the Mass Communicator magazine for Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

Priceless Penny is the second book that I have written. The first book is a collection of poetry entitled More Than Words that was published in 2010. In 2015, I created my own publishing company called Theuerkauf's Tails, LLC. I am also an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Independent Book Publisher's Association (IBPA) and the Dog Writers Association of America (DWAA).

Priceless Penny

by: Lauren Kramer-Theuerkauf

“Priceless Penny” chronicles one dog’s amazing journey from solo stray to pampered pooch. Penny was abandoned by her previous owners and left to roam the streets of California alone. She was soon taken to a local high kill shelter. Penny’s life was in great danger and her deformities made her undesirable in the eyes of would-be adopters. Penny’s allotted time at the shelter was quickly drawing to a close. She had nowhere to go, no one to love. Then, one day, a woman entered the shelter and discovered Penny. Little did Penny know that she was about to embark on the journey of a lifetime.
