Lori Wick is an author of Christian Romance novels, having more than 100 million books in print.[1] Lori Wick has written 18 novels of heart-warming romance set in a wide variety of time periods. She has written about Victorian England, the American West, and contemporary life. But, regardless of the setting, Wick consistently populates her books with tangible, though "too-perfect-to-be-believable" characters and predictable plot movement. Her first novel was published in 1989 and this year she is publishing her eighteenth. Ask this prolific author how she views herself, and she’ll say very humbly, “I’m a small town girl with a high school diploma and a few semesters of Bible school under my belt.” She is quick to add, “However, my lack of training gives me a tremendous opportunity to glorify God. It’s because of Him that I write. I have learned that He can do amazing things with vessels that are willing to be filled.”


She writes a combination of historically based novels and present day, many including romance.[2] Many of her books are published by Harvest House.


Wick lives in Wisconsin with her husband Bob and 3 children.[3]
