Lorraine Pestell

Lorraine Pestell was born in London and has had a successful career as an Information Technology professional in the UK, US, Europe, Singapore, and more recently Australia.  Lorraine currently resides in Melbourne, Victoria, with her 13-year-old dog, Jed.

Although still working full-time, Lorraine is a passionate volunteer for several organisations, including serving on the Board of Directors of Propel Youth Arts WA, being a mentor for The Smith Family’s iTrack program and providing project management assistance to The School Volunteer Program.  She finds that volunteering time and energy to those less fortunate is an effective antidote to life-long depression and the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The idea for “A Life Singular” originated when Lorraine was 14, and the story continued to develop in fits and starts since then, whenever time and life events permitted.  However, three years ago, a new element of the plot triggered a sudden urge to complete the books, and since then the story has evolved into six separate books.

  1. Hi Lorraine, thanks for the follows by Twitter and WordPress. I too find social media takes over everything else. An English author tweeted recently that a writer’s job now is only 25% writing! SD

    • Thanks, Sandra! I agree, and have yet to see a correlation between social networking and book sales… Perhaps it’s the old critical-mass thing? Nice to “meet” you. Best wishes for a higher percentage of writing!
