Lori Finnila


Lori Finnila is humbly a writer learning to be a writer, yet a dam good one. She writes from what she knows or has experienced to move herself in the process. She likes prose because it gives her full reign of her abilities to express her experiences in the richest of detail.

Child-like fiction and fantasies of the unknown come to her mind regularly. Challenging unknown thoughts are what she likes to bring to others drawing from those parts of the brains that would ordinarily cease to exist. There is a vast world out there and Lori wants you to get to know it with her.

Watch for Lori’s other literary and recording works at Barnes and Noble and Amazon including her children’s series, The Angel Works and her poetry series Poetry for Survivors, as well as her acclaimed memoir, When I Woke Up, A Book of Abuse published through her own publishing network LJ Productions and Publishing as well as a traditional publisher, America Star Books, and The Virtuous Woman, Love Of A Child, and The Voice of Woman recording tracks at iTunes and Amazon under Lori Jean.
