Author Barbara Lohr

Bio:  Barbara Lohr writes contemporary romance, both adult and new adult. A flair for fun and subtly sexy love scenes are her trademarks. In her two series, Windy City Romance series and Man from Yesterday, feisty women take on hunky heroes and life’s issues. Family often figures in her work. "No woman ever falls in love without influence from her family, either positive or negative." When she's not writing, she loves to bike, kayak, golf or cook. She makes a mean popover. Barbara lives in the South of the United States with her husband and a cat that insists he was Heathcliff in a former life.

Q:  At what point did you decide to make writing a profession: What got you started?

A:  Writing has been the core of my career. At the start, I taught writing to high school juniors and seniors while free lancing for a local paper. From there I went into advertising where I did everything from sales to copywriting. Healthcare marketing also required a lot of writing. In the evenings and on weekends, I wrote short stories for the confession magazines, which I really enjoyed. Sold over two hundred stories. Felt right to segue into novels later.

Q:  What is your genre?
