I’ve received a number of queries this week asking if I knew the new pen name or the current status of an author whose books were very much enjoyed. I figured if anyone knows, it’s the Bitchery, so today I’m going to run a few “What Ever Happened To?” queries.
The first comes from author Alexis Harrington:
Back in the early ‘90s, before vampire books REALLY took off, there was a series written by an author using the name Lori Herter. These were great books, most especially the first one, OBSESSION. Three others followed and then it seemed that the author disappeared. I’ve searched the internet and have found only this series and a couple of other stragglers put out by Silhouette/Harlequin.
Does anyone out there know what happened to this writer? The books were copyrighted under Goddard and Kamin, Inc., so who knows?
Anyone know if Ms. Herter is still writing, perhaps under a new name?
ETA: I have news! I received this email from her list manager:
I just read “Whatever Happened To Lori Herter?” It was too late for me to
comment there so I wanted to say…Lori is alive and well and working on a
book. I’m the list “Mom” of her Yahoo group
We have been quiet while Lori writes and that’s mostly my fault. I should
be on there encouraging her and getting her other fans to do the same. Lori
is a sweet and dear person.
Her vampire love stories paved the way for all the others and to me none can
compare. If you would, please pass this information on with your readers here on your
