Hello and welcome! I’m writer Lori Schafer, and I’d like to thank you for visiting my author website. Here you will find my blog, links to my published work, information about my forthcoming projects, and, if I’m feeling very inspired, the occasional photo of me.
I’m a very eclectic writer, by which I mean I’m all over the place. My first three novels – Just the Three of Us: An Erotic Romantic Comedy for the Commitment-Challenged and its two-part sequel The Other Three of Us – are humorous and genre-bending amalgamations of romance, erotica and women’s fiction. But I also write memoir when the mood strikes; this is how On Hearing of My Mother’s Death Six Years After It Happened, a book commemorating my adolescent experience of my mother’s mental illness, was born.
In addition, I’ve had a ton of short work published in a wide variety of print and online venues, so if you enjoy flash fiction, short stories, and essays, please check out my publications page, where you’ll find links and a complete list of my credits. I have also published selected works as eBooks on Amazon, ITunes, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo, Smashwords, and Lulu, so feel free to download whatever strikes your fancy.
I call my blog “Short Subjects I Feel Like Writing About” for good reason, because this is my place where anything goes. I generally post links when I have a story published, along with commentary on the piece, and lately I’ve been doing a lot of travel posts because I’m in the midst of drafting my second memoir The Long Road Home. But I also post essays on a host of other subjects, everything from ruminations on popular culture to interpretive book reviews to articles on writing and publishing. In addition to my blog, I also publish two newsletters – one for my memoirs, and another for my erotic books – to which you may subscribe if you’d like to receive my updates.
I’m very active on social media, and I’d love it if you’d connect with me in the venue of your choice:

I have an abundance of projects in the hopper, including this one, from which I’ve derived my slogan:
“We Are All Miss America”
I’m not ready to share yet exactly what it means, but it’s part of a super-secret project that I plan to launch in 2016.
In the meantime, feel free to drop me a line at lorilschafer(at)outlook(dot)com. I look forward to hearing from you!
