Biography[edit]

Lori Copeland had a relatively late start in writing, breaking into publishing in 1982 when she was forty years old. Over the next dozen years, Copeland's romance novels achieved much success, as was evidenced by her winning the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award, The Holt Medallion, and Waldenbooks' Best Seller award. Despite her success in more mainstream romantic fiction, in 1995, Copeland decided to switch focus. Her subsequent books have been in the relatively new subgenre of Christian romance. She has also collaborated with author Angela Elwell Hunt on a series of Christian romance novels.

Copeland has been inducted into the Missouri Writers Hall of Fame. She and her husband of over forty years, Lance, live in Springfield, Missouri.[1] They have three grown sons. Copeland and her husband are active supporters of mission work in Mali, West Africa.
