Biographical and Professional InformationLori Rader-Day is a multi-award-winning writer from Chicago. With her debut novel published by Seventh Street Press just a few short years ago, she has catapulted to being a lead author with William Morrow/Harper Collins. Her collection of books - Under a Dark Sky, The Day I Died, Little Pretty Things, and The Black Hour - have garnered three Mary Higgins Clark Award nominations, multiple Indie Next Pick nominations (carefully selected by independent booksellers across the country) and an Anthony Award (chosen by her peers and genre readers alike.) Her short fiction has appeared in ''Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine'', ''Time Out Chicago'', and ''Good Housekeeping''. Her writing is breathtakingly suspenseful and always features a strong female lead character. But more than a talented storyteller, she's an important part of the book industry, especially locally. She co-chairs the popular Chicago mystery conference Murder and Mayhem. She's an author's author - always helping others find their way, and has devoted her years to helping libraries and bookstores flourish. Originally from Indiana, Lori was recently honored with the prestigious Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award. Lori leads writing workshops across the country. She is active in the Midwest Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America and a member of Sisters in Crime, International Thriller Writers, and International Association of Crime Writers.
