Lorraine McNamara is a semi-retired legal secretary, actively involved in promoting strong traditional values. She was a homemaker for 23 years, and together with her husband, Harold (formerly a high school Art department head), raised six children, some of whom still live in the family home. Lorraine returned to the workplace at age 50, and even though she is past the usual retirement age, she has no intention of quitting her job in the foreseeable future. Her favorite pastime has been reading mystery and suspense stories. She decided to try her hand at writing Naught for Satan some years ago, but only recently made a serious effort to complete this novel.
