About Me

I am Lori, a 40-plus writer, mom to a Boston Terrier and paralegal (which pays the bills until I sell my book!)  I currently live in sunny Orange County, California – – the happiest place on earth!

Reading is one of my great passions; I am a voracious reader, leading to my brain and imagination (hopefully) expanding but it can also lead to the hips and waist expanding.  I am obsessed with Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice sequels, prequels and knock offs, mysteries, historical fiction and true crime.  I have a book review site, Psychotic State Book Reviews (www.psychoticstate.net) so please stop by and say hello.

I also love old movies, particularly those made in the early 1930s.  Boy, did people know how to glam it up and dress then!   If I had a time machine . . .  I am especially partial to Joan Crawford, Myrna Loy, Norma Shearer, William Powell, Jimmy Stewart and Clark Gable.

I am fascinated with England (see above, the obsession with Jane Austen) and this girl is planning a trip in 2014 to England, Ireland and Scotland for the first time.  So stick around!

I don’t smoke and I drink very little (I do enjoy a wine cooler every now and again).  My biggest vice is ice cream and (shamefully) Dr. Pepper.

I have found that after hitting 35, my metabolism changed and I became an emotional eater.  Whenever my husband is deployed, I tend to soothe myself with food.   Being small boned and only 5’4″, I can’t carry much extra weight without it being noticeable (and without my pants threatening to bust seams and/or buttons).

I was diagnosed with acid reflux and GERD 3-4 years ago and I suffer from the after-effects of whiplash from a car accident (i.e., neck cramps and pain, back pain and stiffness, headaches – – all that fun stuff!).  My job can exacerbate all these symptoms; the majority of the day I work at a computer or am buried in files at my desk.  Very sedentary.  Very bad on my back, my neck and my body in general.

So here I am.  Ready for a change.  And ready to finish my book and get it published.

Welcome to my world and thanks for joining me!

  1. Hello Lori, welcome to the blog The Journey Up The Mountain. I hope you noticed that it is completed. However, reading what you say above you may be interested in my Self-healing by Meditational Focus by which, amongst other things, I healed myself of the effects of seriously damaged cervical vertebrae 5,6 and 7. In my profile here is a link to the site of my writings.
