What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My love for true crime and trial watching, along with the many great attorneys I’ve had the privilege to witness over the years.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I knew I had to have a detective and a murder victim. I started there, and the other characters came rolling in. Their lives intertwined and I mostly followed their lead.
There is a “Look Inside’ on Amazon, with a 30 page preview.
Lori loves animals, music, movies, and all things to do with the law.
She became a trial watcher even before CourTv. She still follows trials.
For her novel Poetic Justice, the Mystery/Legal Suspense genres seemed to be a perfect fit.
Her love for animals has been a constant throughout her life. She currently lives in New England with her two cats. Inspired by a recent documentary, she has become a voice for orca in captivity.
Note from the author: As I was writing Poetic Justice, my characters took on a life of their own. Their hearts led me to that touch of romance.
I looked forward to visiting my characters each time I wrote. I hope you enjoy visiting with them, too.
