About the Author

Loretta Herrington is the wife of a retired Marine Corps Colonel, a former government executive, small business owner, and an old soul with a youthful spirit. She had the good fortune to live in Japan and to travel abroad extensively. Her work with diverse cultures in the United States, and overseas has gifted her with life experiences unlike any others – that she views with a global lens. Loretta develops deep emotional bonds with her friends and gravitates toward people who share her values. Loretta and her husband Rick live in the City of Fairfax, Virginia, near Washington, DC, with their family dog, a rescued Jack Russell Terrier named Harley. Harley is a bundle of energy and named after Loretta’s favorite sport - riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle on the open roads. She takes every opportunity to meet Americans living in small towns and farms when she and Rick take to the open road and rediscover the basics of life. After the September 11th attacks, Loretta wanted to help her wounded nation to rise up and heal. She applied for a position with the Bush Administration and in October 2001, was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve within the Executive Branch. For eight years she worked in his Administration in a number of executive level positions that combined her love of country, respect of public policy and belief in the American Dream for everyone, including women, and civilians and veterans with disabilities. Her most memorable moment was witnessing President Bush sign the Afghan Women and Children Relief Act providing educational and health care assistance for Afghan women and children. As co-founder of AGTG, LLC Tours, Loretta plans to escort tours to the country of Georgia, sharing her love of the country, with those who are yet to discover the pride of the Georgian people, their culture and rich heritage. Loretta believes life is not arbitrary and everything happens for a reason – on many levels that may not be clear at the time. In “Piece of Soul Through the Heart ,” Loretta invites you into a personal journey with her family through pride, sadness and the gift of friendship that rises from the ashes of tragedy.
