Lori is a University graduate, having obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree - with a major in English. She spent eight years working as an Early Childhood Educator, spending time with children of all ages - including those with special needs. She enjoys reading, walking the malls with her mother (or strolling through the flea market), hanging out with friends, and most of all spending time with her husband and children.
She has two sisters and two brothers, and an extended family that includes seven nephews and six nieces. After the birth of her second child, she decided to stay home and watch children -- until her third baby was born, and now has taken time off to focus on family and writing.
Her writing interests began when she was a young girl, beginning with short stories and poems - to her first 'book' in grade four entitled "The Mystery of the Missing Horse". Why write mysteries? They keep her interest as well as her readers'. She loves to leave her readers hanging at the end of a chapter - unable to put it down until a later time. Her method? "I create the characters and let THEM write the story". Her favorite genre to write is romantic suspense, but she reads all different types, and is willing to try something new. Her next objective is to try her hand at writing for children.
