About Me

Welcome to Loripalooza!

I’m Lori Wescott- a thirty something freelance writer, author and humorist residing in Music City. You may have seen me in Awkward Smoking Pictures, various newspapers, and in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters. Also, I’ve been named Trophy Wife of the Year for ten years running according to one website (this one). I’m most proud of that accomplishment.

When I’m not writing humor, I’m usually writing music reviews for newspapers, falling down in public, or taking care of my adorable ginger son, Luke.

Reminder- Book Signing This Weekend!

Don’t forget this Saturday from 2-5pm I will be signing copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters at the Nolensville Feed Mill. I will have twenty copies on hand to sell, or feel free to bring your own. Remember, you don’t need a book to stop by and say hello. I’d love to see you!

The address is 7280 Nolensville Rd.Nolensville, TN 37135
