Author Biography

Turning passion into words in print is a dream come true for Lori Power.

From Radio host (best job ever!), DJ, news reporter to newspaper journalist, like many author’s, Lori has been writing most of her life.

In writing, Lori has discovered a truism: everyone has a great story to tell. All you need to do is listen. Over the years, with all the people Lori has meet previously and daily, both professionally and personally, with an ear to the ground, readers can often find these ‘character’s’ fictionalized in stories.

Not confined to one genre, Lori has published select children’s books and one cookbook, based on a gluten-free diet, as well as non-fiction industry blogs.

Lori’s first novel “Storms of Passion” was published by Wild Rose Press under their Champagne line, in 2014.

Collaboration is important to improving one’s craft and as such, Lori is an active member of the TransCanada Romance Writers, Romance Writers of America, The Alberta Romance Writers Association and belongs to both a Critiquing group and a Beta Reading weekly group.

Lori looks forward to continuing to find the good story; hashing out a scene, having fun with a character and writing the story she would love to read.

Reviewed by Julia Schemmer for Readers' Favorite

Are you craving your own Great Wide Somewhere? Are you tired of living vicariously through your Facebook posts, Instagram photos, and Tweets that paint an unrealistic picture of who you are and what you value? In Storms of Passion by author Lori Power, protagonist Vivian Margaret reaches a conclusion about love: she's tired of waiting for it. As she slowly sees her friends fall in love, she decides to take adventure into her own hands by trying something new: sailing. As she sails her own boat of ambition, surprise waves come along the way. Things are going great until Tucker MacLean comes along, a hunky swimmer with a past to tell. Will she experience a love story of her own, or will she be satisfied with being who she is as an independent woman? Read more to find out!

I'll be honest in saying that I am not a fan of relationships. While my friends dangle their weekly lover like a noodle hanging off a fork, I was always content to study, work, and try my hardest to progress my career. That's why I was so immediately satisfied when I discovered Vivian Margaret, the main character in Lori Power's Storms of Passion. Like myself, Vivian is tired of the conventionality that comes with relationships, and strives for something that will make her feel more satisfied. The book is filled with incredible anecdotes, adventure, and of course - the romance that we all can't get enough of. To everyone searching for their own adventure, whether this is in the form of a relationship or a plane ticket to a foreign destination, I highly recommend this book.
