Book Excerpt:
As security was escorting the middle-aged woman from the second floor of the formal dining room, my friends overheard the woman saying, “But I only maced her once!” Curious, they followed behind and sat nearby to eavesdrop on the conversation while security questioned the woman whom they had just sat down in an empty lounge area.
Of all the things you could imagine one woman macing another woman for, what do you think this incident was over? A man, perhaps? Not even close. It was over a cup of hot chocolate! Yes, apparently this woman’s tablemate had drank her hot chocolate at dinner, so she pulled out her pepper spray and maced her with it.
Why it didn’t occur to the woman to just order another hot chocolate is beyond me. What further boggles my mind is why she thought just macing someone once was so much better than having maced her multiple times.

Lori, Tell us about you
Hi, I’m Lori A. Moore and I live in Louisville, KY with my husband and our sweet little cat, Grady, who we adopted from the Humane Society.  A recovering workaholic, I worked 25+ years in corporate America without realizing I had a creative side.  Now I’ve realized that I can write and take some pretty good photographs of non-living things.  I believe that I have the gift of silliness, which keeps this almost-51 year old acting more like she’s 12.

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that my husband and cat are there for me.

If you could hang out with one famous person for one day, who would it be and why?
Kid Rock.  You didn’t see that coming, did you?  I’d like to know how he handles the fame and criticism and that he does to relax when he’s not performing.

What’s the story behind your latest book?
I love to travel.  So far I’ve been to all 50 states in the USA plus somewhere between 55-58 other countries.  Fun, silly, and unbelievable things happen when you travel and this book is a compilation of some of those stories.

Tell us your writing process
A process?  You don’t know me, do you?  J  I just wing it.

When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
I still haven’t realized that.  My first book was a result of my journaling to deal with my grief after my former husband died unexpectedly.  Then I realized I had a lot to say about a lot of things.  Am I a writer?  I’m not sure.

Tell us about your main character:
In my latest book, “Oh Ship!,” there are many main characters, including myself.  It’s stories of little snippets of drama that I either observed or participated in during my travels.

What are you working on next?
My next book will be coming out in the summer of 2016 and is my first attempt at suspense fiction.  Are you ready for the title?  “My Cold Kentucky Home.”

Do you have any special/extraordinary talents?
None.  Absolutely none.  My brother is older than me and he stole all of the talent before I was born.

Who are your favorite authors?
From wildly different genres, Liz Curtis Higgs and Ted Dekker.

What do you like to do with your free time?
Play on social media and travel.

Tell us about your plans for upcoming books.
After “My Cold Kentucky Home” comes out, I don’t know what I’ll write next.  I really enjoyed writing suspense, so perhaps another one of those.
