About Me

My name is Lorrie Porter and I write fiction for teenagers. My first novel, Wolf Soul, has wolves, bandits and other miscreants among its pages. While my second novel, Cradlesnatch, is about a monster who steals children.

It took me 8 months to write Wolf Soul in first draft and three years to edit. With Cradlesnatch it’s a different story.  I worked on the first draft for three years and only had 8 months to edit.  I had a deadline to get the polished manuscript to my agent and the clock was ticking.

I’m now working on Dead Boy and I thought it would be interesting to share my journey from first draft to publishable manuscript, because in this internet age writing doesn’t have to be the lonely pursuit it once was.  I hope you’ll share the adventure with me.

My writing has been supported by the Arts Council of England through their Grants for the Arts programme.
