Lori L. Foster was born on November 14. She did not attend
college and married with her High School sweetheart. The marriage settled in Ohio. She held various
jobs as a saleslady, a grocery store clerk, and a Proctor and Gamble material
handler before having the first of her three sons in 1981, after that she
stayed at home to raise them.
Unlike many writers, Lori Foster never considered a writing career until she
was in her early 30s. In fact, she'd never even read romances until her sister
once forced a load of them on her while she was down sick and unable to fight
back. But it was a blessing she quickly took to, and before long, she was
thoroughly hooked. It seemed a natural progression for the reader to want to
write, so Lori penned a romance novel in longhand, strictly for her own
entertainment. Once that was done, she borrowed a typewriter and started
another. When she attended a local writers' conference and discovered that not
many people had ever completed a book, Lori began to realize she might actually
have a talent for something that she absolutely loved doing.
