About the Author:

Lori Bradley was born and grew up in southern Illinois but has traveled extensively throughout the southern US. She has spent her life studying history and reading. She finished her education late in life with a degree in marketing from Glendale Community College in Glendale, AZ. She owned and operated two successful costuming businesses catering to both Renaissance and Medieval reenactors. She has been reading and writing since grade school and has always had a special love of history. In high school she wrote a history of the very small town, Akin, in southern Illinois where she and her family lived. Her history teacher was so impressed with her piece that she had it recorded at the local Historical Society. She is currently working on a series of novels set in the Old West called The Soiled Dove Sagas, dealing with prostitution in the 19th century West. She is now a retired grandmother who makes her home in Glendale, AZ.
