Biography of Loraine Lotter
Loraine grew up in Gauteng, South Africa, where she graduated from high school in 2009.

She enjoys writing young adult, fiction and romance novels, and at the same time likes trying out different genres every once in a while.
“It’s good to be flexible when you’re a writer. There’s so many different things to experience in this world, and I think it’s important for any artist to sometimes take risks and think outside the box.” –L.L
Even though she’s only published one novel so far, she isn’t planning on stopping any time soon. Now, as a published author at the age of 20, she’s stydying graphic and advertising design whilst continuing writing the rest of the books in the Heart and Soul saga as well as a few other different novels.
“It’s something I don’t think I can ever give up now. I think, maybe I’m addicted. Ha-ha! ” –L.L / October 2011

Unaware Of Anxiety
Not aware of anyone, glancing down my way. I'm dancing to the music, the feeling hard to say.
My eyes closed,
Faced at the sun,
Arms spread open,
Nowhere to run.
My head is full of thoughts,
Voices in my ears,
A past that's frightening,
A future of tears.
Daydreaming in my head
