About the Author

In her former life as a sociology professor, Lorna published many academic and research papers. Creative writing is a new path taken since her premature disability retirement in 2006 due to Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. How Was I Supposed to Know? was awarded Best Memoir, 2012 by the Adirondack Writing Center in their annual Literary Award Contest. In 2010, she was a finalist in the Memoir genre of the Writer's Digest Annual Writing Contest with her short story, "Monkey Business." This memoir is her first book-length publication. Somewhere in her mom's closet is a single edition of original poems about a frog, a ghost, and a kitten. The booklet was illustrated by Lisa (her younger sister) and compiled for her mother's birthday when Lorna was about seven years old. In case anyone is searching for it, the cover was made from green construction paper. Lorna currently lives with the man of her dreams in the Pacific Northwest. She keeps herself busy writing, quilting, walking, and blogging. Oh, and she has been sober for over thirty years. Her other book is a novel based on the true story of her grandmother's life. It was published in 2014. To find out more about Lorna and her current shenanigans, visit her blog,
