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: KEEP THE HEART OF A CHILD; THE MUDPUPPY and THE FOX TROT (based on childhood experiences).
Her stories and verse, featured in THE SIRENS CALL E-ZINE and at SERVANTE OF DARKNESS, have been published in anthologies such as TERROR TRAIN, WE ARE DUST AND SHADOWS, BONES II, MIRAGES: TALES FROM AUTHORS OF THE MACABRE, MASTERS OF HORROR: DAMNED IF YOU DON'T, SPLATTERPUNK SAINTS, 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.
Parents' Little Black Book Reviews
on May 04, 2012 :
A mansion, thought to be haunted, and witness to many unexplained phenomena and deaths, become the site for a film crew and a seance.
Summoning the spirits of the death, the unexplained mystery investigators encounter more than they expected. Much more. Will anyone escape?
Funny, quirky and full of interesting twists Fossill will make you think twice about things that go bump in the night.
Very imaginatively written by the author, Ms. Lopes, it is a definite must read for those who like their horror ghoulish and fun. At about 18 pages it is a quick easy read perfect for lunch hour or an extended coffee break.

This is one of the most amazing stories that have come from the mind of Lori Lopez. This Bone Man is a character that equals a force to be reckoned with.
From one mansion that becomes a number of different things in it's years including a sanitarium, but the one thing it really was is a place where murder was always going to happen. When a psychic buys the old place to record and try to contact the poor victims of this evil building he bites off more than he can chew.

Only from the mind of Lori Lopez would fossils leap from the ground to bite you on the butt! From the very first sentence this shadowy story grabs your attention and you know you're in for an adventure. Pyschics beware! You just might connect with more than you bargained for.
