About Raven West

Raven West was one of the very first print-on-demand (POD) authors when her novel "Red Wine for Breakfast" was published with the AOL Writers Club in 1999.

Before M.J. Rose reached fame for her e-book on a disk, "Red Wine For Breakfast" was published by Book-On-Disc.Com (June 24, 1999). Before Dan Poynter made his fortune as the marketing guru in the Print-On-Demand industry, the novel was one of the first books published in that format by iUniverse, (July 2, 1999).

Before Kindle, "Red Wine for Breakfast" moved to SMASHWORDS in ebook form.

Her second novel "First Class Male" was published by independent publisher Lighthouse Press, but when that company folded, she took over all publishing rights and re-distributed her novels through Amazon's "Create Space".

Her non-fiction book "Rescuing Ruby: How I Rescued My Father from Greedy Cousins, Thieving Attorneys and the Florida Guardianship System" by Robin Westmiller, J.D. has reached as high as #4 on the Amazon best-seller list.

West has appeared as a guest on numerous radio and cable TV broadcasts. She's been a book-signing author at Book Expo Association (BEA) in both New York and Los Angeles as well as a featured author at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival and Santa Barbara, Ojai and Ventura County book fairs.

A first class read. The characters are well drawn and likeable. The plot moves energetically with romance, action and surprise twists. Not a classic style romance.

The hero of this romance is indeed a first class male, which is refreshing in a genre where the heroes are often, at least at the start, domineering, truculent and aggressive. Alex Bentley is actually nice – a desirable male lead with integrity as well as good looks. He treats frustrated writer Rachel Clark with kindness and decency, never snarling or behaving badly as their relationship unfolds. Rachel is a lively and intelligent heroine, and she too behaves like a real person, not a limp flower at the mercy of her emotions.

Given that two such smart, sensible people would have no trouble in getting together, it takes a strong plot to keep them apart, and Raven West provides this very convincingly. The stakes increase with each turn of the story, leading to a fully satisfying conclusion thanks to the cleverness and persistence of the characters.

The writing style is clever too, there are repeated phrases and a symmetry in the characters’ actions which serve to lift First Class Male to well above average. You may feel that you know more about the US Postal service than you expected by the end of the book, but you’ll have enjoyed a strong and vibrant story about people who are well worth spending time with.
