Lenora Thompson is a syndicated freelance writer hailing from Northern Minnesota. Seven years go, she left a successful career in IT, married her husband, Michael, and reinvented herself as a freelancer.
Narcissism Meets Normalcy was launched in 2016 and now ranks in the Top 10 Narcissism blogs by Feedspot. Narcissism Meets Normalcy brings narcissism, cults and their 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, religion 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.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Michael who suffers from the rare lung disease Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis, and their dogs, Adele and Cleo, and kittens, Snuggles-n-Cuddles.
Her passion is learning culinary science, kitchen hacks, food history, new recipes, global cuisines, famous chefs (yeah pretty much anything related to food!) and writing about all of the above in her newest blog Reluctant Cook, Cheap Foodie, as well as gardening, photo retouching/restoration (Click here for more details!), reviewing new books and reading, reading, reading!
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). Cult News Network has also featured her Cognitive Dissonance article on their homepage.

Bravo, Lenora. Bravo...
So good I wish I'd written it which is the highest praise one writer

"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."
