Lori Hart Beninger resides in Northern California with her husband, a circle of friends and family and goofy pets, all of whom contribute to her writing in immeasurable ways. Ms. Beninger has two historical-fiction novels to her credit: "Embracing the Elephant" and "A Veil of Fog and Flames" - historically evocative tales of early California. And one non-fiction, "An Ordinary Tragedy," that chronicles the life of her brother - a promising young man who became a convicted felon by the age of 18.

And I'm brutal on myself when I do. Phillip Roth once estimated that a writer puts down on paper about 3 times as many words as s/he ultimately uses in the final work - I think I'm above average on that (and that isn't a good thing).(less)
