Bio

LOberweger

LORIN OBERWEGER began her storytelling career by captivating her first-grade class with tales of her summers on a kibbutz in Israel.

Lorin had never been to Israel.

While teacher/parent night put an end to her first experiments in spoken word performance, she’d already caught the bug and eventually made a career of all things story.

A long-time independent editor and story development guru whose client successes range from small press publications to major bestselling novels, Lorin has also worked behind the scenes as a ghostwriter on a variety of projects, from middle grade fiction to adult memoir. Her work has received starred Kirkus reviews and glowing mentions in The New York Times.

Lorin’s award-winning poetry, short fiction, and articles have appeared in well over one-hundred periodicals, including the bestselling FRENCH QUARTER FICTION. An excerpt of her novel-in-progress, ITCH, was awarded “Best of Workshop” at Writers in Paradise, co-founded by author Dennis Lehane.

She and co-author Veronica Rossi are the hearts and minds behind author Noelle August, whose first book, BOOMERANG will be released by Harper/William Morrow on July 15th. (Check it out here:  BOOMERANG). Next in the series: REBOUND and BOUNCE.

She is represented by Tracey Adams at Adams Literary.

As an adult, she did actually get to see a kibbutz and found out she had it pretty much right all along.
