“The uncertainty of a freelance writing career,” Lori Erickson told me once, “is that it tends to keep you at the top of your game. You can’t relax in the same way as with a regular job. There’s a hunting mentality to it. You have to be alert, but there’s a kind of adrenaline that is exciting. That’s what you get in exchange for lack of security.”
Lori is a good friend. She has also been a valuable and generous mentor to me over the years as I have pursued my own freelancing career. Lori has published over a thousand articles in national and regional publications; she also authors a popular spiritual/travel blog at Patheos called “Holy Rover.”
Now, her biggest game to date: Holy Rover: Journeys in Search of Mystery, Miracles, and God. This delightful, thought-provoking, and inspiring memoir of faith and travel has been named by Amazon as the #1 Release in Literary and Religious Travel Guides.
I’m so glad Lori’s years of work at developing her sharp hunting skills have led her to bagging this beautiful book. May her wisdom and faith inspire all of us to follow our own passions, choose uncertainty over security, and become the best hunter/gathers that we can, each in our own way.
