portrait-6-retouchedLori E. Erickson is a short story author and novelist specializing in speculative fiction whose stories run the gamut from light magical realism to historical fantasy to cyberpunk. Her stories have been published in several venues, including Cricket Magazine, The Leading Edge, and Deep Magic. She counts authors from Tolkien and Lewis to King and Koontz as influences, with a special place in her heart for Robert R. McCammon and Tad Williams.

In addition to being a writer, Erickson is also a mother, an accountant, an artist, and a juggler of an assortment of other jobs as dictated by the whims of fate. She currently lives in central Indiana with her husband, two sons, and The Dog. When she’s not writing, she enjoys painting pretty flowers, beating up pixelated monsters, and listening to punk rock.

Erickson’s currently available books can be found at Amazon--if you enjoy something you’ve read, please consider leaving a review! Indie authors love little more than word of mouth endorsement.

Please feel free to drop the author a line! She would love to hear from you.
