Tori Carrington

Nicknamed the dynamic duo, the husband-and-wife writing team of Tony Karayianni and Lori Schlachter began writing together in 1984, a scant ten months after they threw caution to the wind and shamelessly moved in together. Twisting the old adage "Life is stranger than fiction," they describe their lives as being "better than fiction." While their backgrounds couldn't be more different Tony Karayianni was born in Smila near Olympia, Greece, and raised in Athens, while Lori Schlachter is a Midwestern native of Toledo, Ohio, U.S., they credit their successful test run and love for each other for leading them to the altar in 1987, and point to their love for romance and travel for leading them to writing. They take great pleasure in constantly redefining exactly what constitutes "and they lived happily ever after" in both their writing and their personal lives. In their books you'll see Tony's keen eye for plotting and hunger for adventure, and Lori's love for vivid characters and the fundamental ties that bind us all.

Under their pen name Tori Carrington, Tony and Lori hit the ground running with their first book for Harlequin, Constant Craving, in 1998 and they show no sign of slowing anytime soon. Their own five book miniseries, The Magnificent McCoy Men, launched with License to Thrill, followed by the second book The P.I. Who Loves Her. The third book in the series is, For Her Eyes Only, while the fourth is, You Only Love Once. The miniseries wraps up with the final book, Never Say Never. Their books have been nominated for and won numerous awards. The writers point out that they'd be outrageously happy if this was all that was going on in their lives, but the truth is they have other news to share on both the personal and professional front. They're thrilled to report that they'll make their Silhouette Special Edition debut with their much-loved book, Just Eight Months Old..., and that they will be writing not one but two books for the new Sizzling series set to launch in 2001.

They also share that with these successes they'll finally be able to begin building their dream vacation home on the little piece of heaven they own 35 kilometers north of Athens, Greece hopefully sometime later this year. That is if they can find the time to oversee the arrangements!
