Raised on a dairy farm in northern Wisconsin, Lois Richardson expressed her thoughts through drawing, writing poetry and jotting down sentences of various subjects. Later in life she studied art and drawing with many fine teachers. Today her art centers on teaching painting and drawing to family who express an interest in learning and paints for her pleasure and relaxation.

Writing became a priority over visual art and she read and attended critique groups and conferences absorbing the how to of the writing world. Hosting a critique group in the North Dallas area became an important learning tool as well as forming friendships with other writers.

Her first book, The Forbidden Room, is a middle grade mystery/adventure story of a brother and sister engaged in solving problems of their haunted home on their own. A sequel, CRACKING the CRIME, is now available.
She lives with her husband in a small Texas town and together they enjoy children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
