About the Author
Lois Richman left Palm Beach County, Florida, and went to Hollywood, California, straight out of high school where she was hired as a columnist and West Coast editor for various movies and wrote articles for women’s magazines before she finished her formal education at Cal State Northridge, earning a BA in English literature. She then taught for the LA Unified School District and worked in gang schools (the basis for a future novel entitled LA Interlude.) Her year in Key West “to do my Ernest Hemingway thing” resulted in a novel entitled Wanted First Mate, (available on Amazon.com) and the first draft for the trilogy beginning with Key West Interlude, Paulette Marshall Murder Mystery Series. Returning to her hometown, she worked on the first draft of Palm Beach Interlude, (publication date set for late 2017), while teaching at the high school level and earning her master’s degree at FAU. Moving onto the college level, she established their ESL department where her students learned English and American skills and were from such countries as China, Europe, South America, and South Korea. A serious interest in human nature and its journeys, her books capture the essence of today’s society told through her characters and the travails of her character, Paulette Marshall, who helps the reader escape into her fast-paced, page-turning intimate style, giving a good read that will make any reader laugh, cry, and become involved and excited by her style. She is a swimmer, plays croquet, reads, and loves bringing her two dogs, Baby and Pearlie, along. She also is a collector of movie memorabilia, including a Gone With the Wind poster board from movie theatres, Disney art, one signed by Walt Disney, and various dress sketches from early films such as Suddenly Last Summer, Raintree County, and Boys Town. She currently resides in Florida.
