[87] Lori M. Lee, author of Forest of Souls

“My goal for this world was to bring together the western medieval-style fantasies I loved growing up with bits of my own cultural influences. Growing up, I didn’t think that characters that looked like me could have the happy ending.” – Lori M. Lee

Lori M. Lee was born in the mountains of Laos, but grew up in the far less tropical climate of Wisconsin where she still resides, although every winter makes her question why. She considers herself a unicorn aficionado, enjoys marathoning TV shows, and loves to write about magic, manipulation, and family. She is the author of several YA sci fi and fantasy books, including GATES OF THREAD AND STONE series, as well as a contributor to the anthologies COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES and A THOUSAND BEGINNINGS AND ENDINGS. Her newest book, FOREST OF SOULS, released June 23 and is a 2020 Junior Library Guild selection.
