LORI CARANGELO was born in 1945 to Italian-American parents in New Haven, Connecticut. She is retired from 25 years administrative positions with environmental, job training/placement, and building departments in Santa Barbara and Palm Desert, California, and formerly managed the largest printing company in Palm Springs.
Lori has authored over 600 published articles and more than 25 unique non-fiction books, some of which can be characterized as "adoption themed," including "CHOSEN CHILDREN" (a documentary), "THE ULTIMATE SEARCH BOOK," and "THE ADOPTION AND DONOR CONCEPTION FACTBOOK. Her "true crime" books endeavor to answer "why" they did it, from "KONDRO" to "SERIAL KILLERS ON THE INTERSTATE." "ESPOSITO" was inspired by parallels to lives of wrongfully convicted men she assisted, including Joe Garcia in "PAST MISTAKES" and Joel Domingues in "BLOOD RELATIVES" which was the basis for an episode on Investigation Discovery (ID) TV that she also helped narrate. And there's more to come.
