About Lory Britain, Ph.D.

Lory Britain

How do you define success?

Lory Britain, voted "Most Likely to Succeed" by her high school classmates, has spent her entire career trying to ensure the success of children.

As the longtime director of an Oregon therapeutic early childhood and family support program and now as a consultant, she has worked daily with the problems of high-risk toddlers and preschoolers. During the past two decades, Dr. Britain's work has also led to three books—two on personal safety and now My Grandma Died: A Child's Story about Grief and Loss.

Prompted by counselor and intervention-specialist colleagues who recognized a need for a book that would help young children understand death and the grieving process, Dr. Britain outlined the concept for Parenting Press. She finished the writing as a means of working through her own grief over the terminal illness of her father.

The mother of two grown children, Dr. Britain is a native of Los Angeles and a graduate of Sonoma State University. She earned her M.A. and her Ph.D., both in early childhood curriculum and instruction, at the University of Oregon.
