Chelsea Lauren

Founder, Book Coach, and Editor

Chelsea Lauren, the founder of Represent Publishing, started writing when she was in middle school. After having vivid dreams that kept her up at night, she started to write them down. She never realized until then that being an author was a job she could strive for. From then, the rest is history.

In high school, she was the editor of her school newspaper and was published in Water Writers: A Hudson River Anthology. Now she holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University.

In 2017, she self-published her first novel, Underneath the Whiskey. Since then, she’s published a co-written novel with Brittany Evans and has been a part of Winter Neverland: An Anthology. In 2018, she founded Represent Publishing, where she’s had the pleasure of helping authors through the journey of self-publishing. 

Kyle Robertson

Editor

Kyle Robertson has been a writer for as long as he can remember. He started from a very young age, rewriting old episodes of his favorite T.V. shows to see how he could have done them “better.” In high school, he finally got up the nerve to try his hand at a novel, and has been writing ever since.

Kyle graduated from Ithaca College in 2014 with a degree in journalism, and self-published his debut novel, The Showstopper!, on Amazon that same year. He’s currently back in his hometown of Philadelphia studying for his MFA in Creative Writing and Publishing at Rosemont College, while continuing to work on and publish multiple novels and flash fiction pieces. When he’s not writing, you can find him outside on long hikes in the middle of nowhere, playing games with friends, or attending and teaching karate classes. He’s a fan of almost all genres as long as there’s a good story involved, but especially likes fantasy/sci-fi, horror, satire, and creative nonfiction.

Brittany Evans

Graphic Designer and Marketing

Residing in the middle of nowhere in Canada, Brittany has loved graphic design for as long as she’s known how to use a computer. In her early childhood, she made websites based on her favourite T.V. shows like, Naruto and Winx Club. In high school, she was the yearbook editor, and the cover she designed won an award for best yearbook cover in her province. Since then, she has designed the book cover for Simply An Enigma, a young adult, own voice novel, that reached number one on Amazon for new releases.

She is currently getting her BA in Graphic Design. Her passion for marketing goes hand in hand with graphic design. In her spare time, Brittany spends way too many hours on Twitter.
