About Lori R. Lopez

Lori R. Lopez wears many hats, literally and otherwise. She is an artist who designs her book covers and illustrates some of her tomes. As an author she writes poems, short stories, novels, children's books and songs, as well as a humorous-slash-serious column called "Poetic Reflections" at Fairy Fly Entertainment. She is 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. Lori has received various honors for her novels THE FAIRY FLY and AN ILL WIND BLOWS. She was named on an Examiner.com list of "92 HORROR AUTHORS YOU NEED TO READ RIGHT NOW" for WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH 2014. Her books also include CHOCOLATE-COVERED EYES, THE MACABRE MIND OF LORI R. LOPEZ, OUT-OF-MIND EXPERIENCES, DANCE OF THE CHUPACABRAS, POETIC REFLECTIONS I and II: KEEP THE HEART OF A CHILD and THE QUEEN OF HATS; THE MUDPUPPY and THE FOX TROT (based on childhood experiences).

Her stories and verse, featured in THE SIRENS CALL E-ZINE, on HELLNOTES.COM, and at SERVANTE OF DARKNESS, have been published in anthologies such as DEAD HARVEST, JOURNALS OF HORROR: FOUND FICTION, TERROR TRAIN, CURSED CURIOSITIES, WE ARE DUST AND SHADOWS, BONES II, MIRAGES: TALES FROM AUTHORS OF THE MACABRE, MASTERS OF HORROR: DAMNED IF YOU DON'T, DARLINGS OF DECAY, I BELIEVE IN WEREWOLVES, THE EPOCALYPSE: EMAILS AT THE END, SOUP OF SOULS, THIRSTY ARE THE DAMNED, and SCARE PACKAGE: 14 TALES OF TERROR.

Review by: Paula Kiskaden on Oct. 31, 2013 :
Jar Baby is a creepy story that you will have to read in one sitting. Lori Lopez tells this dark tale with such vivid detail it pulls you into their world and won’t let go. Jar Baby keeps you on the edge and sticks with you even after you have finished reading. I highly recommend this story.

Review by: JENNIFER THOMAS on Oct. 30, 2013 :
What a great story! Lori R. Lopez spins a great tale of the Jar Baby.
When a man sells the one thing he is supposed to protect to save the lives of his wife and unborn child he know that he has enabled another to unleash hell and the vengeance of the demon on the world. He must stop the actions that he has allowed to be set in to motion.

All Alice wants to do is check out this comic store that she heard about. The sells man is a little on the creepy side but little does she know that life is about to throw her into an adventure she would never dream of.

Wonderful word flow and outstanding character development.

I totally enjoyed this story. Jar Baby is no normal baby, he's steeped in history and malice. The characters in this book are great, I had some cool laugh out loud moments. As always by author Lori R Lopez, the book is well written and holds the attention the whole way through. Great read, I recommend it!
