I love spending time with family, running away with my husband, reading, writing, and visiting antebellum homes. I am currently pursuing a college degree and having the time of my life. A recent highlight was being inducted into the prestigious Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Lorraine is an award-winning author, having won nine awards for her novels at the Florida Christian Writers Conference.
Reviews of Lorraine's Books
Love at Laurel Oaks
Walker’s trilogy starter is delightful. The characters are believable and she delivers a message of salvation and hope throughout the book. The 19th-century Florida setting could be a new one for some readers – they’ll love the historical facts peppered within the pages. 4 stars ~ Romantic Times BOOKreviews
An uplifting and sweet historical adventure, that's not afraid to have fun now and then!
Lawana Blackwell, author of The Gresham Chronicles
Love at Laurel Oaks is awe-inspiring, renewing one’s hope in Christ. Ethan and Elizabeth’s trials, along with other characters’, was a reminder of how faith in God triumphs over any obstacle. The blessing baskets should inspire us to reach out to those in need. Excellent, awesome book! I couldn’t put it down! A must read!

I just wanted you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed reading Katherine's Heart. It was absolutely wonderful! I enjoyed Love at Laurel Oaks and was waiting on Katherine's Heart. Your books keep getting better!! When I read your books, I can just imagine everything as it happens and it leaves a wonderful image in my mind.
Your books are very inspirational, romantic and make me laugh at times too!

Hannah and the Preacher
Lorraine, when I finished Love at Laurel Oaks, I thought it was the best book I had ever read. And then I read Katherine's Heart. Both books are hard to put down, the best of the best. From laughing to crying and oh no, this part cannot be happening! It’s good to see the love of our heavenly Father and his forgiveness in a format everyone one that reads each book can understand. And then I read Hannah and the Preacher. Oh my, it is my favorite. This book just keeps on moving. I loved Hannah's personality, she keeps it real while somehow trying to be proper. And the ache is Wendell's heart is so deep and real. But God has a plan and that plan is always working in their lives. The best of the best!

Lorraine, I just finished Hannah and the Preacher. I read it in 3 or 4 evenings.
It’s like a box of chocolates you want to savor and not eat the whole box at one time.

I’m reading your third book now. This one is the best yet.
I’m reading it slow to make it last. I always feel kinda sad when it ends.
