Once upon a time, best-selling author Loree Lough literally sang for her supper, performing before packed audiences throughout the U.S. Now and then, she blows the dust from her six-string to croon a tune or two for her grandchildren, but she mostly just writes. Over the years, her stories have earned nearly 100 industry and Readers Choice awards, seven movie options, and over eighty four- and five-star reviews.
Loree has nearly seven million copies of her books in circulation. She has written more than 100 books, thousands of articles, and many short stories. Loree loves sharing learned-the-hard-way lessons about the craft and the industry, and her comedic approach to teaching makes her a favorite (and frequent) guest of writers organizations, book clubs, private and government institutions, and college and high school writing programs in the U.S. and abroad.
A writer who believes in "giving back," Loree dedicates a portion of her income to Soldiers Angels, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and several other worthwhile organizations. She splits her time between her home in the Baltimore suburbs and a cabin in the Allegheny Mountains, sharing both with her real-life hero, Larry, who rarely complains, even when she adds yet another item to her vast collection of lighthouses, wind chimes, "wolf stuff."
