There are those individuals we know little about who skulk and creep delightfully across page or screen. In reality, we are taught to avoid them. Sometimes, however, they may surprise us. The Dark Mister Snark is such a figure. Beware! "Candidly lurking in the shadiest of places, a fellow whose mask wore the gruesomest faces, the dark Mister Snark might be tiptoeing after -- shunning the sun and the mirthfullest laughter, spying and shying from your backward stares, following to catch you in complete unawares!" Narrated by witty rhymes that spin the tangled threads of solitude and acceptance, this book tells the tale of a mysterious man prone to stalking through shadows. Is he misunderstood or mad? A villain or an anti-hero? His secrets will be revealed in humorous and touching poetic-prose, with Halloween and Edgar Allan Poe among the themes. You will not look at corn or Crows the same. And once read, you could find Mister Snark watching you from every dark place! Look for an illustrated print edition featuring peculiar artwork by the author, Lori R. Lopez. THE DARK MISTER SNARK won Second Place for Poetry in the 2016 Purple Dragonfly Book Awards. Book One of a whimsical Trilogy!
About the Author
She recalls penning poetry before prose (with a pencil) inspired by Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes, Doctor Seuss, and songs on the radio. As a young person, she read stacks and stacks of books in nearly every genre. There are many books she loves and many authors whose work she cherishes. One day she hopes to learn the mystical secrets of balancing writing and art with reading and living a life.
Some of her best friends have feathers or fur, but she does know various humans too and some of them are pretty special.
Lori has other titles that you can read, ranging from humorous to serious and everything between. A number of them are as dark as Mister Snark. She lives in Southern California with two kittens and two sons, not necessarily in that order.
