Lorraine Carey is a retired children’s reading specialist, teacher and an International Award-Winning Author. She has taught in many states in the US and provided reading services for students at a private school on Grand Cayman, where she lived with her husband for nine years. She was a city gal living in Orange County, California, until fate whisked her to the Caribbean where life was very different from the one she was accustomed to. Trading in her fashionable heels for flip-flops was quite a change, but led to a lifestyle that allowed for a writing career to flourish.
As of July 2018 she has moved back to the states and residing in the picturesque city of St. Petersburg, Florida.
Her love for paranormal stories and urban legends began at a young age, when staying up all night to watch spooky movies or reading a scary book started a lifelong passion.
Lorraine is no stranger to the paranormal, as she has encountered many unexplainable events during her lifetime. Many of those events have been woven into her fiction tales
Published novels include: Losing Ground, a short memoir, followed by Mysteries of the Red Coyote Inn, Out of the Ashes, Jonathan’s Locket, The Last Vestal Virgin and Beloved Sacrifice. These novels are paranormal with a mix of historical fiction, woven with urban legends and suitable for young adults to adults. A Rock Star Reader by Kindergarten is a self-help guide for parents on creating a successful reader and lifelong lover of literacy. The Good Teacher and On Borrowed Time are her latest works in the Women of the Willow Wood Series. This Award Winning series is based on legends of an underground secret society of women who use ancient magic.
Supernatural thriller, Jonathan’s Locket was a 2014 winner in the Readers’ Favorite contest, earning a Silver Award and a finalist in the Wind Dancer Film Contest. This Young Adult novel featured some of the island legends out of Grand Cayman surrounding the shipwreck of The Ten Sails.
Other works include Camp Cougar, which is the author’s first attempt in the erotica field. She has teamed up with a co-author to create this hybrid, humorous erotica. Leona’s Legacy, a sequel to Camp Cougar has recently been released in January of 2018.
When not writing you can find Lorraine reading, beach hopping, snorkeling, or boating with her husband on their boat, the Angelica.
