Since first publishing in January 1996, Lori Foster has become a USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly and New York Times bestselling author. Lori has published through a variety of houses, but is currently with Harlequin. Lori lives in Central Ohio where coffee helps her keep up with her cats and grandkids between writing books.
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 began writing her annual benefit books, meaning once a year she writes a novella where all advance and proceeds from the sales of the book go to wonderful, local causes. In the beginning the books benefited our deployed men and woman, the YWCA Battered Women’s Shelter, and more. In 2013, Lori decided that the proceeds from the benefit books would go to the Animal Adoption Foundation.
In order to assist her other favorite local charities, all raffle sales from her annual event, The Reader and Author Get Together, go to the One Way Farm, a local home for abused and abandoned children.
Additionally, a percentage of all book sales from the event go the Conductive Learning Center of Great Cincinnati, a local school for children with spina bifida and cerebral palsy.
