About Me

Born and still based in Ohio, Stephanie Lorée writes fantasy fiction and occasionally moonlights as a rock star. Her stories have appeared in places like Abyss & Apex and as tie-in fiction for the Pathfinder RPG. In 2013, she was a finalist for the Writers of the Future award; 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 in search of adventures, loyally serving her feline overlords, cuddling with her canine writing buddies, or rolling dice with her tabletop group. You can also sometimes catch her singing and playing piano in dive bars. She loves gaming, good sushi, and bad kung fu flicks.

"A young girl and her troubled sister find a dragon egg. This was both uplifting and heartbreaking, and definitely one of my favourites of the collection."

Kahlia @ Goodreads


"A great story, and set in a difficult-to-understand land of Druma. This really brought the country and its politics to life for me, as well as having great characters and action!"
