A Lawyer, A Judge, A Writer, & A Comedian


This is sounding like the beginning of a "walked into a bar" joke. But, actually all four of these characters describe one person - Lori Duff. According to Lori, she is an attorney by day, and a three time best-selling author of humorous books; because her day job doesn't make her laugh. Her passion for the written word can easily be seen through the different avenues she shares her talents.


An award winning writer and popular humor Blogger, Lori writes for the following news outlets: Huffington Post, The Patch, Monroe and Loganville Local News. She writes two blogs one titled, Legalese, that won the 2016 President's Award from the Council of Municipal court Judges. The second blog, Lori Duff Writes, tackles everyday observations made by Lori and often includes insights to her family life. One particular blog focused on how it is not wise to leave a husband unattended at a Flea Market while attending an out-of-town wedding. The end result could include the addition of a new pet to the family.


Lori is the afternoon keynote speaker at this year's writers conference. She tackles the legal side of writing with her wit and humor to make the topic easy to understand. In the evening, she will fill the role of emcee for the first annual Georgia Independent Author of the Year Award banquet. The Southern Pen Bookshop is honored to have the talent of Lori Duff to perform these dual roles of keynote speaker and emcee.
