Welcome to Lori's Literature

Lori Klisman Ellis was born in Detroit, and currently resides in West Bloomfield, Michigan.  She received her Masters Degree in speech and language pathology and worked for 36 years. Though she is retired from her career, she has a passion for genealogy research. This has led her to write books on her family and retrace her family's roots. 4,456 Miles: A Survivor's Search for Closure is a book about her mother's life in the Holocaust. She also writes children's books.

     Lori's goal is to work on preventing hatred, bigotry, prejudice and antisemitism. She also encourages acceptance and diversity in order to have world peace and eliminate genocide. Every high school student and adult should learn about the Holocaust. Her books are one way to work on these goals.

Speech Tips with Spunky Monkey encourages kindness, friendship, acceptance and inclusivity. She also provides tips for those with speech and language challenges. 

Ryan's Magical Shoes is about diversity and acceptance. Ryan's Magical Chairs teaches children to use their imagination and learn about different jobs.

Fairy the Friendly Fawn is a book about rescue, rehabilitation and release of a beautiful fawn. It's also about compassion, kindness and altruism to wildlife. 

     Lori asks you to purchase some of her books so she can donate the books to schools, libraries, synagogues, or churches of your choice. In return, she will brand your business by placing a bookplate with your name and business in the books, so people will know you generously donated the books. This will help your business or practice grow, as well as help children and adults display more empathy and  kindness; and honor/celebrate diversity in others.

     Lori and her husband Jeff have two beautiful children, a daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons. Lori enjoys traveling, exercising and spending time with her family.
