Lori's Corner: Where Lori answers reader questions

I got this lovely email from a reader, Katelyn Chapman, and thought I would share.

LORI:

I would just like to say thank you. Your stories are not just about romance. They are about perseverance and inner strength. So thank you for giving that to your readers. Some of us really need that strength you pour into your novels. It helps us not only escape our realities for a moment in time but also learn and absorb that strength you dole out. In a way it helps us to find the strength to be that strong and proud individual you right about. So thank you. As the writer I’m not sure if you truly know how much your work means. But it does.

All About Lori

Since first publishing in January 1996, Lori Foster has become a Waldenbooks, Borders, USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly and New York Times bestselling author. Lori has published through a variety of houses, including Kensington, St. Martin’s, Berkley, Silhouette and Samhain. She is currently with Harlequin.

Lori believes it’s important to give back to the community as much as possible, and for that reason she ran special contests in conjunction with a publisher, facilitating many first sales for new authors. She routinely organizes events among authors and readers to gather donations for various organizations.

Lori hosts a very special annual “Reader & Author” event in West Chester, Ohio. Proceeds from the event have benefited many worthy causes, including the Hamilton County YWCA Battered Women’s Shelter, the Animal Adoption Foundation, The Conductive Learning Center for children with spina bifida and cerebral palsy, and The One Way Farm, Children’s Home.

In 2007, Lori put together The Write Ingredients a cookbook of recipes donated by popular authors. Proceeds from the cookbook go toward Lori’s ongoing “Troop project” of collecting and mailing fun, and sometimes necessary, items to our troops.
