About the Author
Christian author LoRee Peery wrote fiction for many years before her first novella was published in 2010. She smiles as she remembers that initial contract arrived on her birthday. She thrills at the writing process when ideas, words, or character voices resonate in her mind. Jotting notes in the middle of the night or trailing toothpaste across the floor on her way to pen and paper, get her pulse pumping. She often notices character quirks and conversation while she’s out and about, and is invigorated when she spends time outside.
LoRee is drawn to reunion stories for two reasons. She believes God is a God of second chances, and the past often needs to be dealt with before anyone can move on in life. Moselle’s Insurance is her first publication, where Frivolities is a crafty, kooky shop in a small fictitious Nebraska town. Her Frivolities Series and other publications are available from Pelican Book Group.
More From LoRee Peery:
My gift to you:
My spiritual gift is encouragement. Natural or learned, I have a talent for detail and was a proficient proofreader on the job for 20 years.
My thoughts on writing:
I have learned to write—unconsciously—from reading.
My writing process:
I often start with one aspect of a story, as the title, theme, setting, or one of the main characters. I give myself 10-14 days for things to stew as I occupy my time with other things. Tactile activities (puzzles, coloring) or outside tasks are a perfect opportunity for those snippets to come to mind. Then I brainstorm.
My writing pet peeve:
Pet peeve words on inaction include after, before, and when.
My Holiday pet peeve:
Christmas during Halloween, Thanksgiving is overlooked and I LOVE the harvest season of Oct-Nov. Why do we get ahead of ourselves? Why do we jump the seasons? We can’t change time. Especially because our time is God’s time. No matter how we try to interfere, God controls the time.
LoRee Peery believes she is a blessed woman who experiences redemptive grace
and Nebraska's sense of place.
