A bad lodging experience on the way home from a family vacation inspired Loris Bree to write and self-publish a book to help other travelers find economical accommodations. Published in 1981, her “State by State Guide to Budget Motels” was the first of many of her self-published books which included several travel-themed books for children. Her foray into the publishing world led to her founding the Midwest Independent Publishers Association (MIPA) in 1984 and opened the door for other aspiring local writers.
