Lorelei was born in Minnesota and lived there until 1981. She then moved to Desert Hot Springs, California where she met and married husband Robert in 1982. They moved back to Minnesota where both she and her husband were baptized in 1986. Their only son Roger was born in 1995 in Palm Springs, California and Lorelei spent most of the next 18 years homeschooling him.
She had the honor of working as managing editor for Beyond Today online articles (previously Virtual Christian Magazine) from 2002 to 2015 and had worked with it in some fashion or another since 1997. She has always enjoyed writing and has done it for a living off and on for many years. Her real love has been writing for the church's publications whenever she can. Lorelei and her family moved to the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona in 2004 and still reside there today.
