Lori Ann Cole is best known as the creator of the Quest for Glory series. Working with her husband Corey, she wrote the series for Sierra soon after joining the company as a freelance writer. The series, which included 5 games (So You Want To Be A Hero, Trial by Fire, Wages of War, Shadows of Darkness, Dragon Fire) released successively between 1989 and 1998, was among the most popular adventure & role-playing games of the 90s on the PC. The series earned Cole critical acclaims from the industry and an iconic status among her legion of loyal game fans.
