Lorraine lives in Gilbert, Arizona, and writes stories about tweens, teens, and fantastical worlds. While she has attempted to write non-magical stories, her characters have refused to stay reality grounded, leaping off the pages to fly. So she gave up trying to be what she is not, accepting her role of a fantasy writer who hopes to share magic with the world. Lorraine enjoys connecting with others in literature and is enthusiastic about sharing writing tips.
