About Me

Picture of Stephanie

Born and still based in Ohio, Stephanie Lorée writes fantasy fiction and occasionally moonlights as a rock star. Her stories have appeared in such places as Abyss & Apex and as tie-in fiction for the Pathfinder RPG. In 2013, she was a finalist for the Writers of the Future award, and in 2015, she was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

With her editor hat on, Stephanie freelances for indie authors and small presses. She has helped edit several anthologies, most recently the Once Upon Anthologies, and she is a longtime slush minion for Lightspeed and Nightmare magazines. She believes in the Oxford comma and reads CMOS for fun!

Stephanie's an active member of the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers, GenCon Writer's Symposium, SFWA, and Codex. Her first passion is short fiction, and to pay it forward she's been known to review science fiction & fantasy magazines, anthologies, novellas, and short story collections.

When not writing, she can be found traveling the globe with her husband in search of adventure, loyally serving her feline overlords, cuddling with her canine writing buddies, or rolling dice with her table-top group. You can also sometimes catch her singing and playing piano in coffee shops. She loves gaming, good sushi, and bad kung fu flicks. Stay up to date and get editing advice for your own stories by subscribing to her newsletter or read her stories at Curious Fictions.
