After a semi-nomadic childhood throughout California, Lorelie Brown spent high school in Orange County before joining the US Army. After traveling the world from South Korea to Italy, she now lives north of Chicago. She writes her California-set books because she hates that winter exists.

Lorelie’s contemporary romance Far From Home is a finalist in the Foreword INDIES and has also been nominated for a Romance Writers of America RITA award.
