Lori R. Lopez wears many hats, literally and otherwise. An author of Speculative Fiction, Horror, Fantasy and more, she writes dark and humorous verse, short stories, novels, Young Adult and children's books, songs . . . as well as a column called "Poetic Reflections" at Fairy Fly Entertainment, the website that she shares with two talented sons. She is an artist who designs her book covers and illustrates some of her tomes, a musician, actress, filmmaker, tree-hugger and animal-lover. A vegetarian, her work often contains themes of conservation, animal rights, and the rights of children. Lori unapologetically takes pride in creatively bending and reshaping the rules of writing when it suits her style.
A horror fan since small, she roamed graveyards as a kid and conducted funerals for dead birds, squirrels, insects and spiders. She was named on an Examiner.com list of "92 HORROR AUTHORS YOU NEED TO READ RIGHT NOW" for WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH 2014, while being featured on Horror Addicts and Promote Horror.com for WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH 2015.
