What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always had an interest in true crime and trial watching. When I decided to write a book, I knew it would be a murder mystery.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I knew the types of characters I’d need. There would be a murder victim, a Detective and attorneys, and the victim’s sister. As I was writing. the characters took on a life of their own. The detective had a street cop buddy. The sister had a four year old son. Each character had a family. They all could be seen and heard in my head, as I wrote.
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.
