Lori Nichols

Lori Nichols was closely connected to nature as a kid growing up in Western Pa. and is always a little surprised frogs and salamanders do not remember her when she runs into them now. When she’s not writing and illustrating children’s books you can find Lori shopping thrift stores, making terrariums or playing Scrabble with her family. Lori lives in the South with her husband and three girls and they stay connected to each other and nature by camping in their vintage Airstream. 
Lori is the winner of the 2014 SCBWI New York Winter conference portfolio award, and is the author and illustrator of the Maple & Willow series and the This Orq series.
