Lorri is a former corporate accountant, turned writer; who lives in Southern California with her husband, daughter, two dogs and a few scrub jays. Her novel, The Thread Mill Audit was inspired during her ancestry search, while she was building her family tree and searching her ancestors when she stumbled upon a distant cousin who moved to Windham, Connecticut. Her cousins’ entire family worked at the ‘Thread Company’. She noticed that the entire 1910 Census page was filled with townspeople who worked for the ‘Thread Company’. A little more research and she had her premise of the book, The Thread Mill Audit.
