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. Her books include ODDS AND ENDS: A DARK COLLECTION, CHOCOLATE-COVERED EYES, THE MACABRE MIND OF LORI R. LOPEZ, THE FAIRY FLY, AN ILL WIND BLOWS, OUT-OF-MIND EXPERIENCES, DANCE OF THE CHUPACABRAS, POETIC REFLECTIONS I and II: KEEP THE HEART OF A CHILD and THE QUEEN OF HATS. She is presently working on a number of sequels and new projects.

Oh Wow!! What a concept. This short is filled with bravery, cowardice, love, depravity, and generosity. This is a story about the ending of an old way of life and the beginning of something new and vital. I love the way Lori Lopez has blended an old concept with a new way of looking at were-people. I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves werewolves and zombies.

A little bit of horror + a little bit of paranormal + a little bit of romance = another excellent short story from the mind of Lori Lopez!
I have to be honest, short stories are not usually my "thing". I like developed characters and well-explained plots, and most shorts just can't carry that off.
Then, I discovered Ms. Lopez's stories. She has full-length novels that are amazing, but her shorter tales are equally well-done. With her gift for words, she deftly makes you aquainted with her characters by telling you what you want and need to know in order to make you care about them. She makes you think of questions as you're reading, and then succinctly gives you the answers to those questions.
The Lycaning holds true to this style. You'll find yourself rooting for the main characters. You'll fear the worst, and then comes the twist...

I will be the first to admit, and I have many times, I am not a werewolf fan. This story changed that.believe me, this is not the usual werewolf tale. Lori takes this age old monster and makes it her own in the best of ways.
Weather a werefan or not you will enjoy the new twist this storyteller has put to paper for our enjoyment. I don't want to give anything away but you will find a bit of love between these e -pages.
