Lori Sanders Foley has been entranced by stories since birth. As soon as she could hold a pencil, she was writing stories and poems, invariably getting into trouble for it. In sixth grade, her teacher accused her of plagiarism, saying that at age eleven she couldn't possibly have written such a good Halloween story. Lori suspected then that she had found her niche, especially since she was the only student in the class who knew the meaning of the word "plagiarism".

Her previous career in the travel industry allows her to travel to the places she writes about. In her many adventures, she has visited all five floors of the Louvre (though only three are open to the public); scaled Tintagel, skulked through Stonehenge and the Coliseum; and has even been kidnapped by Elizabethan pirates.

When she stepped into her first TARA meeting in 2001, she found herself in a wonderland of ideas, of intellect, of passion, and decided to stay. In 2003 she won the TARA for her medieval historical Dragon's Lair. Currently her alter ego as a Drama Teacher allows her to toy with characters and plots while she polishes her manuscripts.
