Loraine Hartley


Loraine‘s compulsion to write exploded when her recent novel “My Delightfully Dysfunctional Family” was published by Friesen Press in 2020. Previously, she worked as a Registered Nurse for 32 years in many areas of health care, both in British Columbia and Alberta. Her medical knowledge opened the door for her to create a column called “Health Update” for The Interior News, a weekly newspaper in Smithers where she worked from 1993 to 2012. Her other success was a fortunate opportunity to have one of her many stories published in the 2020 Spring Issue of British Columbia Magazine.
