Lori Twining is an author, writer, blogger and social media guru. She works as a Civil Engineering Designer during the day and slams her thoughts into her laptop during the early hours before the birds get up and late at night, writing fiction full of emotion and magic. Lori is in her sixth year as an Executive Board Member for the Writers’ Community of Simcoe County, and is currently the WCSC Vice-President, Secretary and Social Media Manager.
Lori has recently won awards in Literary Competition for her fiction. Her writing has appeared in three nonfiction anthologies, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas in Canada, The Writing Spiral and The Quilted Word, and she has two fictional stories in Beneath The Surface: A Collection of Grey-Bruce Stories. Two of her unpublished novels have received Judge’s Honorable Mention in the Muskoka Novel Marathon. She’s an active member of many writing groups: SCBWI, CANSCAIP, WCSC, TRW, RWA and Owen Sound’s Ascribe Writers. She's a lover of books, sports and bird watching, and a hater of slithering reptiles and beady-eyed rodents.
She currently lives on the outskirts of the City of Owen Sound. There, she spends the time away from her keyboard with her husband, Ed and their three growing children, surrounded by 5 acres of beautiful trees, marsh area and amazing wildlife.
