World-traveled but deeply rooted in Pennsylvania, Lois Kathryn Herr documents the lives of real people. In 2009, she published “Dear Coach: Letters Home from World War II” about her father and his athletes. Herr majored in English at Elizabethtown College and the University of Pennsylvania, received a Fordham MBA, then forged a successful 26-year career in the telecommunications industry. In 1990 she returned to Pennsylvania, this time as a farmer, and then college teacher and senior administrator.
In 2003, Herr published Women, Power, and AT&T: Winning Rights in the Workplace.
