Lois W. Stern

After twenty years as an active educator, I continued to pursue my love of writing, soon becoming co-editor of a popular Long Island web-zine, LI Eye. As I created and authored my column Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives, I solidified my special niche of investigative journalism and put those same talents to work while writing "Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery". I followed up with my second book, "Tick, Tock, Stop the Clock. – Getting Pretty on Your Lunch Hour" to address many of the less invasive paths to beauty. After completing these two books on aesthetics, I began writing what I call ‘Inner Beauty’ stories - inspiring stories to touch the heart and soul. I initiated my Tales2Inspire® “Authors Helping Authors” project/contest in 2012 as a means of sharing inspirational messages written by authors from across the globe, but never dreamed it would grow in such strength and numbers as it has. It is FREE to enter and provides winners and selected finalists with some exciting platform building opportunities. The winning stories get published in one of the Tales2Inspire collections, followed by great PR to help these authors on their individual paths to discovery. I work with a passion to deliver exactly what I envisioned: an ‘Authors Helping Authors’ project and a contest all in one. I am thrilled to be able to help talented writers build stronger author platforms, and continually strive to find new and innovative ways to strengthen opportunities for discovery for all members of the Tales2Inspire family. This has truly opened a whole new chapter in my life, and hopefully in the lives of my winners. I invite you to get your F*R*E*E* Tales2Inspire e-book sampler to catch the spirit and grab some inspiration: http://tales2inspire.com/tales2inspire-gift/
