About L. Thomas-Cook

Moved from upstate NY three years ago in 2011 to live along the Grand Strand. Retired early childhood education administrator. Certified speech therapist. Volunteer board member in SCWW in 2011 as grant writer and 2014 conference chair. Volunteer and board member in Murrells Inlet Community Theatre. I love to write fiction with twists and turns, the not-so-usual topics, forbidden lovers, conflict, challenges, and psychological thrillers where good fights evil, ghosts haunt the living, and life after death is debated. I love the beach, nature, photography, my family (husband, son, daughter) and my dog, Sonny. Oh, and I'm a napoholic too.
