Lori B. Duff

Lori B. Duff's work has been compared (not by her mom) to Erma Bombeck and David Sedaris.

Recently named "Atlanta's Funniest Lawyer," Lori is a national award-winning author of four humor collections, including the recently publishedIf You Did What I Asked in the First Place.

Foreword Clarion calls her new collection of laugh-out-loud stories "bold and unapologetic" and "light and fun, useful for unwinding after a busy day."

Her humorous musings in her newest book run the gamut - from growing up an introvert in a loud Jewish family to the ups and downs of parenting (food babies included). And while she might not be an official superhero, Lori's takes on the wonders of women are insightful and relatable observations of some of the biggest heroes life has to offer: mothers, career women and all-around funny ladies.

Lori describes herself as a recovering lawyer, and an unrepentant proponent of the Oxford comma and the two-spaces-after-a-period rule. She is a part-time municipal judge and sought-after ghost writer. She lives outside of Atlanta with her two teenage children, three if you count her husband.

"I ended up doing a monthly subscription news thing to dozens of small newspapers across the U.S. and Canada and that led to feature stories and yada, yada, yada," said Brokaw, improviser, performer and author of th ...
