Bio: Lorraine grew up globally, constantly having to adapt to different cultures. Writing was her escape from the reality of always being the new girl in school. These days she writes for the pure joy of creating new stories instead of escapism. Her short stories have been published in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and mystery/crime anthologies, and usually feature an Indian protagonist. She can be found at www.lorrainesharmanelson.com, and on Twitter @loneriter.

My Goodreads author profile is new, so I don't have much traffic yet. It was such a nice surprise to see your question this morning. Okay, I would recommend that you start with my story, "Antipastdead" in the NOIR AT THE SALAD BAR anthology. Then, if you like fantasy, maybe read my story, "Beauty and the Beast: The Beast Within" in the AFTER THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER anthology If you like horror, then maybe read "No Experience Necessary" in THE BACCHANAL collection, followed by "Through A World, Darkly" in the MONSTERS VS. ZOMBIES anthology. On my website, there are two sci-fi stories that are available to read online, which I won awards for. Please feel free to do so if you like sci-fi.
I have three more stories being published between now and December: a crime story, a fantasy, and a horror story, which I will add to my Goodreads profile as they become available.
Again, thank you so much for your interest. I would love to know your responses to any of the stories you read. I hope to see you again. Best, Lorraine(less)

I do something different, like hiking, chores, reading, vegging in front of the TV, or getting together with friends. Basically, anything else but writing. Then, if the urge to write doesn't come back in a few days, I force myself to sit down and just do it.(less)
