Lenora Thompson is a syndicated freelance writer hailing from Northern Minnesota. Five years go, she left a successful (but boring) career as an IM&T Project Implementation Analyst to marry her husband, Michael, who suffers from an ultra-rare terminal lung disorder.
Since 2012, Lenora has reinvented herself as the author of the popular blog, Narcissism Meets Normalcy, which was ranked in the Top 10 Narcissism blogs by Feedspot. Narcissism Meets Normalcy brings narcissism and its many rotten psychological bedfellows to justice while healing millions of victims worldwide.
After over thirty years in a cult-like family of multi-generational narcissists, Lenora is passionate about helping others understand how narcissism twists minds, hearts, consciences, souls and relationships. It also gives her a "fire in her belly" to help the thousands who are held against their wills in oppressive families, relationships, cults, churches and religions.
Her articles featured on the Huffington Post and PsychCentral are gritty, sarcastic and humorous. Sometimes, they're too hot for any other site to handle!
In October 2016, she was pleased to join YourTango, writing poignantly about marrying a terminally ill man and their marriage.
As a entrepreneur, Lenora has done a little of everything to make ends meet from home, allowing her to also care for her husband. In addition to writing, she has burned pyrography artwork, maintained an eBay store and sold homemade bread to make ends meet.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Michael, playing with their dogs, decorating their 1912 cottage, studying Koine Greek, learning about the Old Masters, listening to symphonies, touring the great museums of the world (virtually, of course), attending Sotheby and Christie's auctions (also virtually), reading biographies and indulging her passion for the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Lenora has been a featured guest on Toronto's Newstalk 1010 and the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA) radio show Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN).

"Lenora, you deserve many rewards with how you have succeeded in turning years of abuse, criticism and character destroying upbringing around into a successful career of helping others by writing based on your painful past. Congratulations on achieving such great success...It was so well written that it brought tears to my eyes."
~ Angela Clarke
A painful read, but only because it was so accurate. I love how witty it is, and I'm a huge fan of using humour as one of many coping tools when reflecting back at my nightmarish "upbringing". Thank you for writing this article; it's a great acknowledgement...You are helping an incredible amount... Thank you, thank you. I can't tell you how much it means to me and so many others."
