About Lora

Lora Senf is a wife, mom to twins, community college dean, and doctoral student. She is also a writer of dark and twisty middle grade and young adult stories.

Lora finds inspiration for her writing in her children’s retellings of their dreams, on road trips through Montana, and most recently in an abandoned abattoir. As a young reader, she raised herself on classic fairy tales, John Bellairs, Ray Bradbury, and Stephen King (she read Cujo when she was eight and was simultaneously terrified and hooked).

Today, she still prefers a rainy day and a scary book to nearly anything else. When she isn’t reading for school, she’s reading fiction—mostly horror or anything a little weird and unsettling. Lora credits her love of words to her parents and to the public library that was walking distance from her childhood home. Lora is a member of SCBWI, Horror Writers Association, and the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. You can find her spending far too much time on Twitter @Lora013.

Lora is represented by Ali Herring at Spencerhill Associates.
