K.L. Randis is the founder of Lovie Journals. By combining her passion of journaling with an adorable logo that mimics her daughter's Lovie, there is now a consistent way to donate funds to domestic violence and sexual abuse crisis centers.
Randis was raised as one of seven children. Her mother was disabled and her father was abusive toward her and her siblings. She attended Pleasant Valley High School, then earned a degree in Psychology from Penn State. At the age of 6, she was gifted a journal for her birthday, which encouraged her love of writing. Randis credits her journaling as a protective outlet that helped her to process her trauma and ultimately deal with her pain.
She testified against her father during his trial, detailing the sexual abuse she suffered, and the physical abuse her siblings suffered, while in his care. In 2004, he was sentenced to up to 16 years in prison for this abuse. She currently resides in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania with her husband and two daughters. She is highly active on social media, using her natality to encourage and advocate for " those who may still be trying to find their own voice to speak out against childhood sexual abuse.
By the age of thirteen, Randis had works of poetry and short stories published. As an adult, Randis is a self-published author who writes under the pen name K.L. Randis. She released her first novel, Spilled Milk: Based on a True Story, in 2013 on Amazon. Within 24 hours, it was #1 in the genre for Child Abuse, and has remained there since. The novel, Randis' autobiography written as fiction, is based on the abuse she and her siblings suffered as children at the hands of her father. Since release, the novel has become required reading in many high schools and colleges throughout the U.S. In 2018, it was reported that Randis is working with filmmaker B. Harrison Smith to adapt the novel into a movie. Randis has authored three other books. Three Gray Dots is a stand-alone book. Palmillas and laced go together as a series.
