Lori is a lawyer with a literary bent and has the scientific chops to rival any CSI investigator."
Hello from Lori:
I've spent the past few years on a exciting project -- creating a Social Network Constitution and writing a book about it! You can read all about it on www.socialnetworkconstitution.com. I traveled across the country and the world, interviewing people who use social networks to expand their opportunities and enrich their lives. I also found people whose lives, relationships, and careers have been ruined based on social network posts.
How can you protect the privacy of your digital self? My new book shows how you can fight back when what you post on social networks is used against you. I need your help to ignite a battle for further protections, from a right to connect to a right to privacy. Please vote on the Social Network Constitution. And I’d love to hear from you on Facebook.
You can order the book on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and Booksense.com.
Lori also writes fiction:
Taking a break from decoding the genetic sequence of a tropical disease, Alex investigates the case of a DEA agent who died a gruesome and unexplained death on a Mob stakeout. Within hours, Alex tracks similar deaths throughout the Southwest. Is it a naturally occurring epidemic—or has a lethal bioweapon been released in the United States?
With the nation’s attention focused on a provocative presidential race, Alex’s attempts to warn Homeland Security fail. Only with the help of a rogue DEA agent and a smack-talking supercomputer will Alex stand a chance of putting an end to the devastation. As the plague spreads, public hysteria mounts. Then, while feverishly working to decode its source, Alex unwittingly exposes herself to the disease...
"Andrews, a real-life authority on genetics, spikes the chills with a talking DNA computer named Sam and insights into hot-button Native American issues."
“Strong characters and fascinating scientific details."
“The scenario is chilling and the expertise undeniable..."
“From the first couple of pages till the end, Immunity was first-class. I thought Immunity was a mix between a Tess Gerritsen novel and CSI. Need I say more?"
NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK: THE SILENT ASSASSIN
“Blending elements of forensic-powered mystery, psychological suspense and a Ludlumesque espionage thriller, Andrews' newest is a page-turner with enough jaw-dropping plot twists to satisfy the most demanding mystery reader.”
The book took Lori to Vietnam and prompted her op ed in The New York Times. Like its predecessor, SEQUENCE, it’s being translated into languages around the world, including Dutch, German, and Japanese.
THE SILENT ASSASSIN is a tour-de-force thriller combining the intricate details of forensic science with the dark side of Washington politics and one of the freshest and most original characters in crime fiction today.
“Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs, watch out!"
“Moving from the White House to a remote village in Vietnam, Andrews’ second series book is an outstanding thriller. Geneticist Alexandra Blake has as many sharp angles as soft edges. She’s a scientist with a heart—and a scalpel brain. Andrews’ tale deftly tackles international intrigue, violence and the murky world of political ambition."

Lori’s legal work continues to pull her into mysteries involving genetic testing of historic figures (covered in PARADE Magazine), cutting edge artists who use genetics in their work, and advising government agencies around the world—including the National Cancer Institute—about sperm donation, in vitro fertilization, genetics, and human research.
