I Never Thought I’d Be a Writer

Lorrie D. Grant is a storyteller with a message. She is always looking for an adventure and always has a story to tell.  Lorrie decided to capture a few of her life stories a few years ago, simply to save her lessons learned for her two daughters.  This unexpectedly led to creating a blog, which then led to the writing of her first children’s book, “Why is there an Elephant in my Basement?” released in 2017.  The following year she released her second book, “Little White Flies”, and her third book, “I am Beautiful Too”, was released in 2019.  Lorrie has a background in Corporate Business Operations, but is most passionate about making a difference in the lives of others.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
