Hi, I'm Layne.

I’m a California-born author, editor, and writing coach, and I live in Berlin and Bulgaria.


My first book, Driving Hungry (Vintage, 2016), is a travelogue that “recalls [Hemingway’s] A Moveable Feast,” according to Canada’s National Post. O, The Oprah Magazine, called it “sparkling.”


If you want to strengthen your writing practice and work through your creative blocks, check out my monthly writing workshops and my articles on Medium.
