Tori is the author of the blog Jake’s Journey, which documents her son’s journey with childhood apraxia of speech. The blog ran with the help of contributing writers from 2012 to 2016. During this time, Tori also wrote articles for various special needs websites to raise awareness for apraxia. A graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in journalism, she worked in the telecom field before becoming a stay at home mom and returning to writing. She is currently working on a women’s fiction novel, which (fingers crossed) should be ready for submission by the end of 2016. She lives in the suburbs with her husband, two sons, and Faith, a spunky golden doodle.
