Lori Crawford has two great passions. Television and writing. As a child, she was a walking TV guide. When not watching TV, she was devouring every book she could get her hands on. Nearly a decade later, her love for reading developed into a passion for writing. She graduated from short stories and imaginary friends to write her first manuscript when she turned sixteen. It went on to languish in the bottom of a drawer where it rightfully belongs. A firm believer in writing from foundation of what one knows, Lori's first published novel features a synchronized swimmer, her second was born from her coupon queenish tendencies and Thwarting Cupid came about because she's silly.
