Bio: Born in the small town of Wayland, Michigan, Lori has been writing since she was about 0 years old. Hand-printing, illustrating, and stapling together pages to look like real books, Lori created such oddities as, "The Mystery of the Old Silo," and "Skull Mansion."
Raised in the country with goofy siblings, a few strange neighbors, and many animals, Lori has cemented her own "quirkiness" through a series of unusual factory jobs and a two-year stint in art school. Presently she is working as a graphic artist, while at long last realizing her seemingly impossible dream of becoming a published author of what she calls "off-beat, Midwestern novels." Acknowledging that most people who hear voices in their head are called schizophrenic, she knows when those voices are put onto paper, assigned names and given personalities, these people are then labeled--writers! Lori believes her novels will resonate with people from both coasts as well as what some may unwittingly call fly-over country.
Lori now lives back home in her small town of Wayland, along with a German shepherd named Madeline, and a three-footed kitten named Tippy.
