Lorie Lee Steiner
Lorie Lee Steiner is a freelance writer, photographer and old house fanatic. Born and raised in Paris, Ontario, she enjoyed a memorable sojourn in the Ottawa Valley (2003–2006) and now resides in Brantford, the Telephone City, not far from her early haunting grounds. She is chair of the Bell Homestead National Historic Site Committee (2009-2010) and spends much of her free time searching for clues along the canal with her canine best friend.
A self-proclaimed history nut, Lorie brings her love of the past to life through non-fiction articles featured regularly in The Country Connection and Edifice Old Home magazines.
On the fiction front, her short story “Cobwebs” was published in the Ladies’ Killing Circle Crime and Mystery Anthology, Going Out With a Bang, Rendezvous Press, Fall 2008; and "Dust to Dust" debuted in the Canadian short story collection, Below the Canopy, Polar Expressions, Nov. 2009.
Entranced by all things mysterious, Lorie is now crafting her first novel – a classic whodunit inspired by the quirky 1860 cottage she shares with her ever-supportive husband, Jeff, and their kooky collie/retriever, Tobe.
