Apart from all these, Gaughen always remains interested in the life stories of the thieves. She likes to learn about their way of living and the methods they use to carry out the crimes.

After that, her long journey as an author began as she kept writing all through her middle school. Very often, she used to submit novels when she was about thirteen years old, which would eventually get rejected because of her unawareness about the norms related to the art of writing actual novels. She continued with her hobby of writing in high school also. The first time when she actually wrote something serious was when she was about to finish her college studies. At first, she felt weird and awkward in starting her graduate program with the reputation of being an amateur writer.

After completing her graduation, Gaughen spent around three years working as a freelance writer. During that time, she had started working on her first novel. She kept writing and submitting her novels based on a variety of subjects, in order to sharpen her skills in writing. The only part of it that made her happy was controlling the things that she write. When the first novel of the series, Scarlet was published, it became a huge hit. Gaughen began to be known as a skillful writer and felt the success to be a different experience. She found an agent to help her publish her future writings. Later, she signed up with the Bloomsbury publishing house and has remained a part of it since then.
