LORI BENTLEY LAW
In case it’s not completely obvious, I’m a bit obsessed with vintage cars and motorcycles, and I know I’m not the only girl who is.
I’m happiest when I hop on my motorcycle for a bit of adventure, or climb behind the wheel of my ’48 Ford Truck, Bondorella, seen in the picture below with me sitting on the tailgate, just as Benny does in the opening scene of MOTOR DOLLS, and yes, my fabulous ’48 Ford Truck is a character in the novel.
I write about Motor Dolls in active, dynamic situations, but it’s not girls-only fiction. I have plenty of male readers who love–not only the hot cars and bikes–but the strength, femininity, and individualism of my characters. Plus, there’s a lot of kick-ass action and heart.
In my daily life, I’m an award-winning television news photojournalist for NBC in Los Angeles…
…a job that has taken me around the globe, and given me a front row seat to some of the most amazing and tragic events happening in our world today.
Outside of news…
I had the pleasure of working as principal photographer on several episodes of the half hour weekly show Travel Cafe, shooting in Fiji, Hong Kong, and Kauai, to name a few. I also completed a documentary on nationally renowned artist, Milford Zornes—one of the coolest human beings I’ve ever met. Man! I want to be like him when I’m 90.
I live in Southern California with my best feller, a whole bunch of misfit motorcycles, and of course, my beloved ’48 Ford Truck, Bondorella.
MOTOR DOLLS is my first published novel.
