Author of the Day

Lorhainne Eckhart
A recipient of the 2013, 2015 and 2016 Readers’ Favorite Award for Suspense and Romance, Lorhainne lives on the sunny west-coast Gulf Island of Salt Spring Island, is the mother of three, her oldest has autism and she is an advocate for never giving up on your dreams. She is frequently a Top 100 bestselling author in multiple genres, and we expect that her The Outsider Series: The Complete Omnibus will also follow suit. As our Author of the Day, Eckhart talks about the Friessen men from her books, reveals which book in the omnibus was her personal favorite and talks about how important it is to schedule time to write.
