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. Fifteen of Lori's poems were published for an anthology titled IN DARKNESS WE PLAY.

Review by: JENNIFER THOMAS on March 31, 2014 :
The three shorts in this book are so different from one another that it is almost hard to believe that they came from the same mind, but as a fan of this author I can assure you they did. Lori Lopez has a way with her words that puts you right into the stories, just as she does here.

In Pound of Flesh I felt the pain and the need of the mother to make sure her daughter was safe while she suffered through pain and fear.
Followed by A Big Problem where I learned the most rational people are often the ones lacking common sense and fear.
Finally,Knock Knock where love can turn into horror in the blink of an eye. The character learns that love can even find you after death.

Great stories and I highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys zombies, horror or even a few quick and gripping reads to help occupy your mind for a bit.

These zombie takes all feature at least one twist, but they were the sort I saw coming well in advance. Enlivened a bit by some grim humor, but not my bag.

3-Z, by Lori. R. Lopez is vintage Lori. A Pound Of Flesh is beyond explaining. I have never read a Zombie tale which captured the human side of what might happen if the Zombie Apocalypse were to come any better than Lori has here. A Big Problem and Knock Knock are pure delight with what I must describe as a wonderful blend of bizarro and cognitive thought. The ending of Knock Knock was superb. A Big Problem was a gem of a read with many plots and subplots that had me hanging on for more. Read these gems. You will be delighted!
