Lori Lansens was born and raised in Chatham, Ontario, a small Canadian town with a remarkable history as a terminus on the Underground Railroad, which became the setting for her first three bestselling novels. After living in downtown Toronto most of her adult life, she moved with her family to the Santa Monica mountains near Los Angeles in 2006. A couple of years ago she relocated with her family to Calabasas, California, home of the Kardashians. Her new novel "This Little Light" is set there.

This Little Light

I started writing my latest novel, This Little Light, set in Calabasas, California, in the summer of 2015, before Donald Trump's shocking election victory. I imagined a not-too-distant future (2025) where ultra religious conservatives have stripped women of reproductive rights and where vigilantism in the name of God is the order of the day. It's the story of two teenaged girl's falsely accused of Read more of this blog post »

Thanks for your question! This is a story about two innocent girls, in a not too distant future, on the run from fanatical, racist, sexist, violent ultra-right wing Christians. Rory Miller, the narrator, makes it clear to the reader throughout the bo See Full Answer

“Write,' she said, 'as if you'll never be read. That way you'll be sure to tell the truth.”
Lori Lansens, The Girls

“I feel, holding books, accommodating their weight and breathing their dust, an abiding love. I trust them, in a way that I can't trust my computer, though I couldn't do without it. Books are matter. My books matter. What would I have done through these years without the library and all its lovely books?”
Lori Lansens, The Girls

“The strangest thing about strange things is that they're only strange when you hear about them or think about them later, but never when you're living them.”
Lori Lansens, The Girls

“If heaven is tolerant and writers are allowed (bunch of liars though they are), I wonder if they gather for coffee to ponder the prose they should have written instead.”
Lori Lansens, The Girls

“I have never looked into my sister's eyes. I have never bathed alone. I have never stood in the grass at night and raised my arms to the beguiling moon. I’ve never used an airplane bathroom. Or worn a hat. Or been kissed like that. I’ve never driven a car. Or slept through the night. Never a private talk. Or a solo walk. I’ve never climbed a tree. Or faded into a crowd. So many things I’ve never done, but oh, how I’ve been loved. And, if such things were to be, I’d live a thousand lives as me, to be loved so exponentially.”
