Web and Technical Assistant
Lorien is a lifelong speaker of Brooklynese with a penchant for dropping the frequent, yet appropriately placed F-bomb. She currently lives in the somewhat boring yet infinitely fresher-smelling Putnam County, NY. Working as a quietly frustrated Administrative Assistant at a large non-profit in Patterson, NY, she blogs by night, letting all her exasperation, and her New York accent, hang out. She writes her heart out (poetry, fiction, snarky humor) and is currently freelance-editing an upcoming sci-fi novel by A.H. Browne.
