Lori Meyer


My name is Lori Meyer. I am a mother of two and an elementary teacher. During the 2008 – 2009 school year, through the enthusiastic encouragement of my classroom full of fourth graders and my own two daughters, I decided to create a story from a dream I had had one night. And from that dream a series grew and then a spin off.

From the day I started on that journey of creating a story from a dream, I found I couldn’t help but become hooked. They say once you are bitten by the writing bug it becomes a part of you. I found that to be true and have been writing ever since.

I have always been an avid reader, with my favorite stories involving sexy vampires and fierce shape-shifters. But now I find even more enjoyment in creating my own characters and stories.

I currently have three short stories and five novels available as e-books.

The first three novels in the Cedar Series are entitled DISCOVERING CEDAR, BREAKING CEDAR, and BEYOND CEDAR. The first two in my spin off series (Cole's series) are entitled SOUL OF SEVEN and SEVEN DEGREES STRONGER . The final ones in both of my series are currently in the works. SEVEN'S END is due out end of summer 2015 and RESCUING CEDAR will be published end of summer 2016. Once those two series come to a close, I have plans for two stand alone novels following new characters I met a few years ago but have had to place their stories on the back burner while I complete the series I'm currently working on.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing during my fourth year of teaching. I had awoken from a vivid dream and became curious as to who the characters were and what happened before and after the segment I saw in my dream. The students in my class, at the time, were very involved in my interests. Many of them enjoyed reading paranormal books as I do. They became as curious as me about what was going on with those characters. So through the combined enthusiasm of my students, my own two daughters, and me my first novel emerged. From there, I continued that story into four novels and then began writing other short stories with different story lines. I found I was continuously asking "what next" and began a spin off from my original series. I continue to write for my own series but also encourage students to pursue writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am currently working on the third book in my first series and the second book in my spin off series.
