Yes, it's true: Once upon a time, USA Today best-selling author Loree Lough (literally) sang for her supper, performing before packed audiences throughout the U.S. Now and then, she blows the dust from her 6-string to croon a tune or two for the "grandorables," but mostly, she just writes. (And writes.) Over the years, her stories have earned thousands of 5-star reviews, more than 100 industry and "Readers' Choice" awards, and 7 movie options.
There are nearly 10,000,000 (yes, that's TEN MILLION) copies of Loree's books in circulation, and by year-end of 2020, she'll have 121 books (fiction and non-fiction for kids and adults) 72 short stories, 2,500+ articles in print.
Loree loves sharing learned-the-hard-way lessons about the craft and the industry, and her comedic approach makes her a favorite (and frequent) guest of writers' organizations, book clubs, private and government institutions, and college and high school writing programs both here and abroad.
A writer who believes in "giving back," Loree dedicates a portion of her income to Soldiers' Angels, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and other worthwhile organizations.
Loree and her husband split their time between their home in the Baltimore suburbs and a cabin in the Allegheny Mountains, where she continues to hone her “identify the critter tracks” skills.
