About the Author
Lora's passion for writing and art began at a young age and followed her into the classroom where she pursues her lifelong dream of teaching. Her role as an educator inspires her writing and offers the perfect backdrop to storytelling. The creative weaving of poetic expression and conceptual ideas result in a whimsical display that spark the attention of young readers.
"I love the power of words, the way they can create mood, evoke emotion and transform thinking. Much the same, is my love for art; the way a single stroke can dance playfully on a page or wither in sadness, depending on its tilt, its size, its colour. The combination of the two is where my stories emerge, where paint splatters onto neatly written words, giving them a certain edge, if you will."
When Lora is not teaching or fiddling around with words, she enjoys running around the vibrant city of Toronto with her two children.
