Author Spotlight on Lori Peters

Welcome to our Author Spotlight, where we shine a light on writers, authors, and literary wonders worldwide.

Today our spotlight is shining on Lori Peters, author of Be Still and Be Bold: 31 Meditations for Trauma Survivors.

1. First, tell us a little about your book/project? 

My current book is a meditation guide for trauma survivors based on my personal and professional work. It’s entitled Be Still and Be Bold: 31 Meditations for Trauma Survivors. The book contains entries, writing prompts and questions based on the varying emotions, thoughts and situations a survivor may have experienced.

2. What kind of research did you do and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?

I did not do much research, as the entries are based on my work with therapy clients and my own experience as a therapy client.

3. If you could tell your younger writing self one thing, what would it be?

I would tell my younger self, “Go for it! What if you fly?”

4. Can you tell us a bit about your writing space? Is there something you need to have when writing a book?

My writing space is my son’s former bedroom. I recently moved into it upon his moving out (insert empty nest grief here!). I like that it has a door so I can retreat, play some soft music and light my overabundance of quirky candles without bothering the rest of my family. Before acquiring this space, I was a nomad writer moving from the basement to the dining room to a wee corner of my bedroom and then to my current office. When I write, the only thing I need is a quiet space and possibly a hot cup of cocoa or tea to get me going.

5. If you could be a character from any book for 24hours, who would you be?

I would love to be Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. Her personality is similar to mine in that we share a quick wit, keen observational skills, a cynical view of life and a fierce independence bordering on anarchy.

You can find Lori's books on Amazon.
