"I believe above all in being different!"

Background Information

Lori R. Lopez is a most unequivocally peculiar author, quite unlike any you are apt to encounter — and if you do, it is bound to be an imposter — because her heart beats to its own irregular rhythm. The “pulse of Originality” flows through her veins, whether writing Fiction or Nonfiction, Verse or Prose. She is never dull. She’s just a little unsane.

Seriously, and she can be serious, this author writes a range of genres including Horror and Fantasy (sometimes a bit dark, usually humorous). While her primary focus is on novels and short stories, one of her many projects is an autobiographical book series about her life which features themes of abuse, family, and following dreams.

She is the winner of the ViNoWriMo 2011 Award from Vicious Writers for her novel AN ILL WIND BLOWS. Other titles include CHOCOLATE-COVERED EYES, a horror sampler; a collection of strange tales, OUT-OF-MIND EXPERIENCES; a volume of verse, song lyrics and prose called POETIC REFLECTIONS: KEEP THE HEART OF A CHILD; and a Horror-Fantasy novel, DANCE OF THE CHUPACABRAS (Tome One of THE TOME TRILOGY OF TRILOGIES).

Her stories and verse appear in anthologies such as MASTERS OF HORROR: DAMNED IF YOU DON'T(Triskaideka Books), I BELIEVE IN WEREWOLVES (Netbound Publishing), SOUP OF SOULS (Panic Press), THIRSTY ARE THE DAMNED (Rainstorm Press), THE EPOCALYPSE: EMAILS AT THE END (Pill Hill Press), DEADICATION (Panic Press), and magazines (THE HORROR ZINE ISSUE "GHOSTS AND HAUNTS"; WOMEN EMPOWERMENT). Fifteen of Lori's poems were published for an anthology titled IN DARKNESS WE PLAY (Triskaideka Books). Interviewed by THE BLACK GLOVE MAGAZINE and Hot Books Daily, Lori is a renegade indie author who believes creative writing should not be standardized or conventional. She and her sons are establishing an entertainment website for their many creative pursuits at

She is a wildlife-eco-warrior and an advocate against Abuse through her prose, poetry, and song lyrics. An artist, she designs her own book covers. She additionally writes two passionate often-humorous columns for her website: "Poetic Reflections" and "Entertainment Is Essential".

My first book trailer:

In her words:
As a writer, I have to make a tremendous effort in order to not add humor in my work. I enjoy serious horror, for example, yet rarely will create it without injecting at least some quirkiness to the plot. I pride myself on being imaginative and original, as well as slightly cuckoo (okay, more than slightly). I have spent years developing a style I feel is my own. I am meticulous about editing and rewrite much more than I write.

I am passionate about poetic prose, about the balance and flow of each sentence I compose. I am a bit obsessive-compulsive over redundance -- which can consume a large amount of time -- and hold unconventional views that I refuse to compromise, such as the voice of a story should be seen and heard (rather than kept quiet so as not to attract attention). I believe above all in being different!
