About Lorinda

I'm a screenwriter and novelist, currently living in the Great White North of the Dakotas, but a million years ago I was a film/AVID assistant out in L.A. Left the biz when things shut down job-wise for my husband in traditional animation. A few moves, a daughter and ten years later I'm back at doing something I've always loved anyway...telling stories.
