RaeBeth McGee-Buda was born in southwestern Pennsylvania in 1987, the second daughter of Rachel Yost and Arthur Curtis McGee. RaeBeth grew up loving to read and write poetry, as well as short stories. Her childhood dream was to become a teacher. Rae Beth's dream of writing was created in her eleventh grade literature class where writing became her passion.
RaeBeth married in August 2012 to her husband, Gregory Stephen Buda Jr. and resides in a small Pennsylvania town of Fairchance. RaeBeth is a full time mother of one beautiful little girl and a mother to an angel in heaven as of May 27th, 2013.
She graduated from American Intercontinental University in 2010 with her associates in business administration. She enjoys spending her time writing and feels that connecting with readers is her main goal.
What is your writing process?
I don't really have a writing process. When I have the time to write, I sit down at the computer and let the characters guide me, unless I'm writing a Non Fiction. If the story is a Non Fiction, the facts of life tell the story.
What do you read for pleasure?
Yes, I do. I think all authors should read. Especially the same books in the genre they write in. I think this helps them become a better author and writer over all.
What happens when all of those dreams are shattered in a moment’s notice? How does one cope with the loss of their child? This is the story of their journey and of the devastating grief of the loss of her daughter, Dakota Emily Buda.
Angel Evolution gives a new meaning to dark and light. In this book, the author takes the reader on a journey that makes the heart race and leaves the reader wanting more. The unexpected twists only adds to the excitement. When Taylor's journey begins, she's a normal young woman starting college and just looking for that normal college experience. She wants a memorable time in college. She get all of that and more once she meets Gabriel and Christopher. Gabriel is an angel and Christopher is a demon.She's instantly part of an old war between the two and finding out her true feelings when it comes to Gabriel.
The plot flows nicely throughout the book and it's always adding to the adventure. I think the author did an exceedingly great job writing this book. The book deals with demons and angels. But it's no where near a "religious" book. I would recommend it to all YA readers. I give this book 5 (five) stars.
I'm not one for short stories.... until now. I read Shades of Grey by Michael Cargill and I must say it was worth it. It's three stories of three different people in very dark worlds. The first story Shades of Grey follows the story line of a captured UK black ops agent. The main character of this one seems to be the one which is allowing the reader into his thoughts. Michael pulled me right in with this one. The second story There and Back Again is brought to the reader completely different than the first. It's focus is on a soldier during World War II which is packed with action. The third Down the Rabbit Hole is about a young boy who's abused becomes friends with his toy rabbit. This rabbit turns out to be his help in his time of need.
I give this story four **** stars. I very much enjoyed it and I'm glad I had the chance to read it.
Zola's Pride by Moira Rogers is a great short read for those who like small quick books. In fact, I feel it was too short. The short story seemed to pull me in from the beginning although it seems to leave out a lot of information I would have loved to know. The plot seemed to be well thought out as was the characters.
With a touch of romance and a bit of action, I give this book four **** stars. I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it and I look forward to reading more of Moira Rogers work. I must say this author is talented and her work is intriguing.
The Vampire Hunter's Daughter by Jennifer Malone Wright is the first in a series of short stories. From the beginning of the story, Chloe's life is full of action and fighting. The way the beginning starts off directly to the point and full of action pulled me right in. I was hooked. I started this book an hour ago looking for something to take me away while I had a moment to relax. I must say this was the perfect choice.
Chloe, 14 years old, is pulled out of her sleep and witnesses what no child her age should, her mother murdered right in front of her. She's taken away to her mothers family, a bunch of Vampire Hunters, and now she's out for revenge for the murder of her mother. I give this short story 5 ***** stars. I can't wait to see what happens next.
I love this anthology. Here are my reviews on each book:

When I got Baby, I wasn't sure if I would like it because of the cover art. I'm really not one for a Sci-Fi type book. As I began reading I felt pain for Netty because of her life as a slave to her husband. As the book progressed and Baby was introduced, I loved the little guy for cheering up Netty and the same with Wil when he came into the story.
The plot was well thought out but I had a little bit of a hard time connecting with the characters. There were times I had difficult following along because of the different writing styles I came across within the book. I did enjoy the plot because it's unique. Baby takes the reader on a journey where love, pain, and happiness are abundant.
I enjoyed reading Baby and finished it quicker than I thought I would. I suggest giving Baby a try because it's easy to enjoy after putting aside the issues within the plot and characters.
Echo: After reading the first book in the series, I quickly started reading Echo because I had to find out what happened next. Once again... I wasn't disappointed at all to say the least. In this part of the series it takes place many years after the first. There's also the introduction of new characters. Abby and Scotty have physical problems with their health and Echo saves them. Therefore making them part of the family.
The plot was fast and kept me reading. The only thing I didn't like about it was the graphic details with Armoni and his crew. Parts of this had me needing a break because it was sort of upsetting. Therefore, I will say if you're sensitive to rape... read with caution.
Other than that I loved the book.
Armageddon Cometh: Due to the cover of Armageddon Cometh, I wasn't sure about this book within the series. The cover art had me a bit worried because I'm normally not one to read (and enjoy) Sci-Fi type books. I have to say that once again the author pulled me in from the first page. The book is well written and the plot runs smoothly. The action keeps your heart going causing to to flip the page. I caught myself saying "Just one more chapter." I started this book this morning and couldn't put it down until I completed it.
This is a series you won't want to miss.
