Lori spent her early years reading books in a tree in northern West Virginia. The 1980s and 90s found her and her husband moving around the Midwest, mainly because it was easier to move than clean the apartment. After seventeen frigid years in Minnesota, she fled to coastal North Carolina in 2013. She will never leave, and if you try to make her, she will hurt you.

She has worked in public libraries, written advertising copy for wastewater treatment equipment, and managed a holistic veterinary clinic. Her current day job, conducted from her World Headquarters and Petting Zoo (her couch) is as a full-time editor for indie authors and small publishing houses.

Her dogs are a big part of her life, and she has served or held offices in Golden Retr

Hah! I've noticed. Nothing wrong with that, though >:-D. I downloaded Kindle for PC, so I was looking at potential downloads from your list. I know there was something you wanted people to read so you can talk about it, but I can't remember what it was....

Erica *waves* Hi, Lori Lady! I'm HEEERRREEEE!!!!

Rachel i kept a book journal too...but i quickly ran out of pages. :) goodreads has been a great replacement--easier and more fun! although, at times it is a bit depressing to see how many people hate some of my favorite books.

Lori Whitwam Gee, wonder why? ;-) NOW I wish I hadn't deleted my vampire book webpage. I had a totally huge collection there, most of which I'll never remember again. But thanks for pointing me to the goodreads site. I used to keep a book journal (for about 10 years) but stopped a few years ago. This will help me out with keeping track of things again!

Rachel i would strongly suggest the creation of a "vampire" bookshelf. :)
