daily report picHi.  My name is Lori, and I’m a recovering lawyer.

After twenty years practicing law, I decided to start doing what I always wanted to do, and what I always secretly did, which is write.  I started with a blog on the Patch, and achieved “Star Patcher” status.  That led to a humor blog and a legal column on Your Local News.  Then my own website, an award from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, a spot in the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop, and a blog on the Huffington Post, among other things.  Oh yeah, I also wrote three books, “Mismatched Shoes and Upside Down Pizza,”  “The Armadillo, the Pickaxe, and the Laundry Basket,” and “You Know I Love You Because You’re Still Alive” which were Amazon #1 Bestsellers.  You Know I Love You Because You’re Still Alive won THREE national awards for humor books.

Check this out, for example:


I’m Number One! I’m Number One!


After a while, it got to be that all I wanted to do was write.  And so I did.  And so I am.  I don’t go anywhere without my trusty laptop in case I should have five spare minutes.  I’m at the point now where I can say I’m a writer who practices law on the side, which is a much healthier way to be, at least for me.  There’s a reason why you can retire from the military after twenty years – wage war for longer than that, and something can snap in your brain if you’re not careful.  Ghost writing and copy writing are a natural extension of the skills I learned being a lawyer.  I know how to research, how to knuckle down and get things done, I know how commas can change the meaning of a sentence, and I understand the value of a real deadline.  Plus, I type about a hundred words per minute, which makes me pretty darned efficient, if I do say so myself.

It is truly surprising to me that everyone doesn’t love to write as much as I do.  In fact, I’ve learned that most people can’t stand the writing process.  This works for me: your chore is my delight.  By hiring me as a ghost writer, I can make your ideas sing without you having to do so much as clear your throat.  Click here to find out more about my  copy writing services and how I can make your problems disappear.

When I’m not writing, you can usually find me chaperoning something band related. (My son plays the oboe and my daughter the flute.) Sometimes, I even have time to talk to my husband.  If you want to know more about them, read my books and my blog.  I write about them more than they like.  But hey – isn’t that the job of a mother of teenagers?  To embarrass her children at every available opportunity?  To cut to the chase, my Instagram screen name is EmbarrassingDuffMom.  Because, who am I kidding?
