About the Author

Lori Litchman is a lifelong Pennsylvanian. Lori grew up near coal country in the Pocono Mountains before making Philadelphia her home, but she's lived in Philadelphia long enough to consider herself a native. She's an outdoors enthusiast who loves to hike and kayak. When Lori's not writing, she's usually teaching English to nonnative speakers. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband, Dave Tavani, and their basset hound, Wendall.
