Lorri-Sue Vodi is a creative writing graduate and English Literature teacher at American Preparatory Academy where she teaches literary archetypes, academic composition and parts of speech.
As far back as she can recall, Lorri-Sue has been a big fan of stories; the first one she remembers hearing is Petunia—an epic bedtime tale about a messy girl who refuses to clean her room—one which Lorri-Sue’s mother likely invented out of pure desperation.
Lorri-Sue’s short stories and poetry appear in literary magazines such as The Montreal Review, Anemone Sidecar, The Black Boot and Pastiche Magazine. Lorri-sue finds most of her inspiration through adventures and misadventures with her daughters. Onion Girl is Lorri’s first novel.
After Syd’s father dies of cancer, she and her mom move from small-town Vidalia to the big city, Augusta, GA, where Syd resists all kinds of change. Unfortunately, change is constant and Syd is soon faced with a choice: either adapt and grow up or face social extinction.
