Dancing With Life

Lori TaylorHungry for story and curious for adventure, children’s author and illustrator/fine artist, Lori Taylor can be found exploring her silliness in nature looking for her next story to tell.  A mother of “two awesome, talented grown kids and grandmother to two amazing, talented granddaughters” with a third grandchild, a boy, on the way in August, Taylor is a true Michigander, born in Pontiac and raised in Clarkston.  She raised her family in Goodrich, moved to Pinckney and now lives in the heart of the Manistee National Forest in Bitely, Michigan.  Her surroundings are the perfect place for her to explore the thoughts that form her next book ideas.  She is fierce in love and fierce in her time alone as she loves her solitary moments and days.  She claims to be cautious when it comes to outdoor adventure, yet she does things to test her physical abilities.  She loves to laugh and loves humor so her silly moments in nature and in public allow her to laugh at herself and give her a unique look at life.  She is a storyteller in picture and in word so she wanders in search of tales.  She freelances in illustration as well as writing, illustrating and designing all of her books.  She markets her books and visits schools to gain exposure.  She is a woman in charge of her world.
