My site is under some 'renovations' at the moment, but you can still view the pages. Just understand that some pages will look odd and out of sync. Thank you for understanding


Hi! I'm Lori and I'm a writer of contemporary small town romance. My brand is sweet with themes of friendship, family and love of community.  Currently, I'm writing a four (maybe 5) book series that takes place in the fictional small town of Misty River, Maine where 'neighbors treat you like family and visitors come to stay'.  I plan on having Dancing in the Grass, Book One published by May of 2021.


I love interacting with other writers and readers in the writing community.  Feel free to visit me on my Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest accounts.

Once that page is up and running, I plan on creating weekly videos showing my writing journey as in indie writer on her way to being self-published.

  Due out May 2021

My first book of the Misty River Romance series, DANCING IN THE GRASS, set in a coastal town of Maine, is due to be released in May 2021.  Fingers crossed. 

Bree Thompson, a principal ballerina for The New York City Ballet, is back home in Misty River, Maine to heal from a devastating injury and a broken heart.  She's encouraged to open the old dance studio and teach young children and adults the art of ballet and lyrical dance.  Lucas Tanner, the contractor she's hired, and the boy she had a crush on in high school, renovates the studio and, in the process, shows her how to rebuild her heart.  His six year old daughter, who is partially paralyzed, teaches her a few things as well. Bree realizes the true art of dancing to the beat of one's heart.

The photo shown to the right is not the actual cover.  Once I have a cover created, I'll definitely be sharing it here.
