Lori is the co-author of the popular series, I Am A What? Quiz
Books, and, Crypt of Souls, Handra's Tomb (The Sinclair Saga),
a young-adult book series. Book two of The Sinclair Saga,
Aznaro's Tomb, and, What Cat Are You? Discovering Your Inner
Feline, will be out by fall of 2013.
The challenges of 'potty training' her dog, Buddy, inspired Lori
to write What Dog Are You? Discovering Your Inner Pooch. That
book kicked off the I Am A What? Quiz Books and led her to
Tami Bergeson (her co-writer). Where Lori's math skills were
lacking (for the point system in the quiz books), Tami was a
guru. They worked so well together that they continue adding
more quiz books and have recently written a young-adult series
Lori has lived in TX, TN, N. D., AZ, and CO. (her father and then
husband were in the Air Force). She finally settled down in an
itty bitty town (population approx. 1000) in Iowa with her
husband and two grown children.
Tami Bergeson lives in Iowa with her husband, two teens and an
ever-changing menagerie of animals.
We have had several requests for the publication date
for What Cat Are You? Discovering Your Inner Feline. We
are still in the editing and testing stage, but hope to
have it published very soon.

These are the two questions that we are asked the most in
interviews and at book signings.
1. Did you have to research a lot? Yes, for over a year we
gathered information and cross-referenced it before writing
anything. We went through numerous books, magazines and
internet sites to compile the most similar and up to date data so
the results of the quizzes would be as acurate as possible. In fact
we had to remove four dog breeds and replace them with other
dogs, because they were too close in traits.
2. Does this book help you to choose a pet that you would be
compatible with? It can since we try to give the readers a lot of
info on the different breeds of dog, from personality & character
to choices and appearance. This gives you a good opportunity to
match the dogs traits to your own. If you live life in the slow lane
you may want a docile dog to fit your lifestyle, or visa-versa.
