I've been an avid horror fan since I was born or thereabouts. I mainly write books, short stories, poetry, articles, essays, and songs. I compose a semi-monthly column called "Poetic Reflections" that contains dark verse and humor. I am also an artist, designing my own book covers and illustrations. I dabble as well in acting, music, and filmmaking. I support conservation, animal rights, and advocate against abuse.
Titles include a fantasy-horror novel, AN ILL WIND BLOWS; THE MACABRE MIND OF LORI R. LOPEZ: THIRTEEN TORMENTOUS TALES, a horror collection; my horror sampler CHOCOLATE-COVERED EYES; 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 unique horror-fantasy novel, DANCE OF THE CHUPACABRAS (Tome One of THE TOME TRILOGY OF TRILOGIES).
Stories and verse appear in anthologies such as MIRAGES: TALES FROM AUTHORS OF THE MACABRE, MASTERS OF HORROR: DAMNED IF YOU DON'T, I BELIEVE IN WEREWOLVES, SOUP OF SOULS, THIRSTY ARE THE DAMNED, THE EPOCALYPSE: EMAILS AT THE END, DEADICATION, SCARE PACKAGE: 14 TALES OF TERROR, and magazines (THE BLACK GLOVE; THE HORROR ZINE ISSUE "GHOSTS AND HAUNTS"; WOMEN EMPOWERMENT). Fifteen of my poems were published for an anthology titled IN DARKNESS WE PLAY. I've been featured by THE BLACK GLOVE MAGAZINE, CUP OF STARS: WOMEN IN HORROR, BLOODY GOOD VAMPIRES, TW BROWN, HOT BOOKS DAILY, THE INDIE SPOTLIGHT and more.
I write by my own rules and am proud of it. My writing tends to be humorous, horrific (oh, that sounds bad, I mean horror-filled, is that better?), thought-provoking, poetic, and I like to use big words. I like to make up words, big or small (usually big). I like words, especially words that rhyme.
