#atozchallenge -- Introducing co-host AJ Lauer

Hello friends! Nice to meet you!

My name is AJ Lauer. I am an author and educator living in the Front Range of Colorado, USA. This is my fifth year participating in the A-Z Challenge and my third year as a co-host. Can't believe it's been so many years already!

In general blog about whatever I want - hiking/travel, gluten-free baking, education, writing. The same goes for my A-Z themes. I've done writing prompts, 'Things That Make Me Happy', random interesting things, and last year's super-fun interactive A-Z Pick Your Plot story.

On the Challenge Team I am a scheduling master - so I help our team keep track of all the things we have going on, including posts, our own A-Z Challenge participation, and timing of other A-Z related events (Theme Reveal Day, etc). I'm also a bit of a data hound, so the participant survey you'll get at the end of the event is a care package from me - please fill it out! :)

Here are all the places you can find me. Stop by and say hello:
The blog
FacebookTwitter @ayjaylauerBuy my book! Armageddon: Pick Your Plot
Join my email list! New subscribers get a free ebook novella. Hooray!

Have a wonderful Challenge, everyone :)

And! Don't forget, our first A-Z Twitter chat is tomorrow, February 18! Join us at 9pm Eastern time (USA) at #azchat. Co-hosts will be around to answer questions and share in general excitement. See you there!


  1. Thanks AJ! Golly April is almost here ...

  2. It's nice to learn more about you! That's a great picture!

  3. I like the photo, AJ!
    I'd love to participate in the A to Z Twitter chat but I'm not sure about the time zones. I'm about 6 hours ahead of the USA, so at 9pm Eastern time I'll be deep in slumberland!

  4. Nice meeting you A.J. I am looking forward to the Challenge. This will be my fourth year.

  5. Creating representatives for progression arranging and other development opportunities. gp tuition
