Born in Portland, Maine and raised in rural western New York, Jennifer Loring had read Stephen King by age 11 and was writing horror stories within a year. Her first publication was in the Canadian vampire magazine Requiem Aeternam at age 21. After graduating with a BA in studio art, Jennifer wrote several novels that thankfully never saw the light of day, dabbled in more short stories (including the first draft of “The Bombay Trash Service”, which in 2004 was awarded an honorable mention in The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror), and ran a popular fan fiction group in which members wrote space opera set in the Voltron universe.
Jennifer lives in Philadelphia, PA with her husband, two basset hounds, and a turtle. She is a member of the International Thriller Writers (ITW) and the Horror Writers Association (HWA).
