Elaine Lohrman, a native Texan recently transplanted to Maine, refers to herself as an “accidental author,” her first book, Conversations with Nora, having begun as a daily journal during the tumultuous years navigating her mother’s Alzheimer’s. Reviewers describe her writing ability as “splendid” and captures the emotions of a “tearful, difficult journey to go through.” Conversations with Nora is “an engaging read with well-developed characters.” While Elaine’s careers have been diverse, spreading as far afield as teaching music therapy in public schools, designing and creating custom bridal gowns, and working as an executive assistant for a major league baseball team, she has continued a love affair with writing and has completed an historical crime thriller and love story entitled The Boathouse due to be published this spring. The Boathouse is the first in a series of thrillers set in the late Victorian era in Upper West Side New York and spins a compelling story of police corruption and deeply enduring love. Elaine Lohrman holds advanced degrees in Music Education and Educational Supervision from Texas Statue University and the University of Texas, and lives with her husband of twenty-three years in South Portland.
