lorrie5yoLorrie Colin Spoering has a degree in English writing from University of Colorado, and a lesser degree in sarcasm earned from the days of yore on AOL. A storyteller since she started talking, she now spends her days writing, reading and contemplating the universe through various pop culture lenses.

Her work has appeared in The Dying Goose, as well as several anthologies released with Cleis Press, LadyLit Publishing, and Seal Press. Her non-fiction essay, “Proofing,” appeared in I am Subject Stories: Women Awakening.

A native of Denver, the feral daughter of two teachers, she now lives with her husband, two children and entirely too many pets. Her favorite writers include Jeffery Eugenides, Margaret Atwood, Michael Chabon, and Jane Austen; her musical tastes run the gamut from John Mayer to Ingrid Michaelson, Radiohead to Death Cab for Cutie. She’s most likely to be found reading through mountains of books or attempting to bake at high altitudes. She has a weakness for repeated viewings of The Office and cheap red wine.
