LORI R. LOPEZ - SUPER MULTI GENRE AUTHOR!





Today it is my pleasure to share a little bit about Lori R. Lopez. The best way to describe Lori is to say there is no way to describe her. She is totally unique in the best of ways. No one could ever possibly capture her unique writing style. It is hers alone. Right now I am telling all of you about her new illustrated book, The Fairy Fly. Of course, she has many other books and short stories written that are equally as good. So, if you want a great read for you, or for your children, Lori is the lady for you. She is pretty much all over the place , so I  have included some links for you to peruse.

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, songs, children's books and nonfiction as well as a quirky humorous-slash-serious column called "Poetic Reflections" at http://trilllogicinnoventions.com/category/category/poetic-reflections. She is a musician, actress and filmmaker.
She has been an animal-lover since small. A vegetarian, her work often contains themes of conservation and animal rights. Also, messages regarding the rights of children.
Her books include CHOCOLATE-COVERED EYES, AN ILL WIND BLOWS, THE FAIRY FLY for ages twelve through adult; THE MUDPUPPY and THE FOX TROT for children (and all ages); DANCE OF THE CHUPACABRAS, THE MACABRE MIND OF LORI R. LOPEZ, OUT-OF-MIND EXPERIENCES, and POETIC REFLECTIONS: KEEP THE HEART OF A CHILD. Her stories and verse appear in anthologies such as MIRAGES: TALES FROM AUTHORS OF THE MACABRE, MASTERS OF HORROR: DAMNED IF YOU DON'T, DARLINGS OF DECAY, I BELIEVE IN WEREWOLVES, 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 (Triskaideka Books).








This illustrated print edition of THE FAIRY FLY presents detailed artwork by the author. A Black Widow queen, a big bad Wolf Spider, and a Hit-Mantis are but a few of the obstacles for a spunky little spider who must find his way home through a strange land of giants in this witty fairytale fantasy for kids and adults. Transported out of his element into a realm of dangers and foes, Spider is aided by the insects and arachnids he befriends, but only he can see the Fairy Fly. Is she real or imagined? This whimsical novel about finding oneself while feeling small in a big world takes a step back and several steps downward to peep at humanity from below. At the same time, the story is an allegory of the human condition: life and death matters, war and peace, our everyday struggles on a tiny scale. Part humorous, part philosophical, at times poetic . . . it celebrates a love for animals, books and words. View the planet from a different angle as you take a spiderwalk through the door to adventure.

Who knew spiders could be cute, not me... I hate(d) them... but how could I NOT fall in love with this little fella, not only is he cute, cuddly, on a "quest" but he Yodels!
As Spider emerges from his nest he is thrown in to Life and he starts his quest for Home, with a little help from some astonishing sources; danger lurks around each corner with some unexpected grins, the humour is rife; "bite the dust bunny!"

Lori Lopez has such a beautiful way of describing scenes/environments that you can almost feel yourself become scaled down to this world.
She has surpassed herself with this story; a wonderful world, some beautiful characters, various life lessons along the way, a multitude of fantastic little poems and lullabys and not to mention the fantasy element thrown in for good measure. I am so looking forward to getting this book in print to enjoy the illustrations too.

The moral compass of this book is steadfast. The telling of tales within the book is ingenious and gentle, but brutally honest.
Lori Lopez astounds me time and again with her use of words; be prepared to learn a few new ones!

Loves the author Bio at the end; Lori... you will always be my favourite crackpot! (ps they DO give out cards!)
