Poet Lauri Halterman uses her poetry to make you think about everyday occurrences in a different light. Growing up in a small town in northern New Mexico, her poetry created a magical escape, but more importantly brought a smile or a tear to her loved ones. Now residing at the base of the Smokey Mountains, the forest fairies have forever touched her soul. auri spent most of her adult years performing customer service and accounting duties in the automotive industry . . . first at dealerships, then in auto finance. After losing her father in 2009, she started working on making her dream come true by publishing this, her first book of poetry. She took a leap of faith and quit her day job in early 2010, to focus on her writing and to be available to assist her Father-in-law with her Mother-in-law who has had Multiple Sclerosis for the past 50 years. Lauri loves reaching out to others and is a huge supporter of those struggling with life threatening illnesses. She has personally been touched by her husband's struggles with the pain of Chronic Crohn's Disease. Having several friends and family members touched by cancer, she is inspired by those in the fight of their lives. To show her support, she has walked in the 'Buddy's Race for the Cure' for the past 3 years and participated in the inaugural Cards4Cancer project in April, 2010; writing a special poem for cancer fighters and making 200 cards for a local Cancer Center. As a wife, mother, and Mamaw to her adorable grandchildren, she is a lover of smiles and hugs. She cherishes her family, her friends and every blessed moment life grants her.
