From a childhood on an Iowa farm, Lori Erickson grew up to become one of America’s top travel writers specializing in spiritual journeys. When she’s not on the road, she lives in Iowa City, Iowa.

Lori is the author of the new memoir Holy Rover: Journeys in Search of Mystery, Miracles, and God. Both irreverent and devout, Holy Rover explores the transformative power of travel through trips to a dozen holy sites.

Lori’s articles have been published in hundreds of magazines and newspapers, and she’s also the creator of Spiritual Travels, an award-winning website featuring holy sites around the world.
