Meet the Author

Lori Gerads was raised in SD amid many animal friends. One summer as a teenager shewas a horse trail guide and had the pleasure tostay with a family with a pet skunk...and, incidentally itwas not de-scented. Interesting pet, and one she hasn't written about yet.

Currentlyshe lives withher wonderful husband Tony of 17 years, and three beautiful daughters Erika, Brianna and Miranda. They live on a 40 acre farm in Eastern South Dakota called Whispering Equine Estates.They havea varietyof pets that have included a goat and a deer. Horses are her favorite animals. Currentlythey have ten cats, a dog and seven horses.

Lori started writing poems on a whim in 2000. One morning when she and Erika were home sick, an owl perched just outsideLori's bedroom window. It stayed all day. That nightshe was surfing the web and saw a contest to win $10,000 for writing a poem.She thought, we really could use some extra money, so gave it a shot. Well,she hasn't won any contests yet, but hasrediscovered a passion for writing poetry and story telling. Lori has since had several poems published nationally and internationally in anthologies including "The International Who's Who in Poetry" in 2005.

Shereally enjoys writingpoems and short children's stories.She hopes you enjoy them as much asshe enjoys sharing them. Lori says, "Dreams do come always strive for the best! Keep reading, and writing."
