A good friend, who is also an author, happened to mention that she likes to read author bios and, when she checked mine, sadly, she was disappointed. The bio I had used at the time was generic, blah, and it didn't tell her anything personal about Blak Rayne. Her suggestion. Change it! What she really meant to say: "I want to read the juicy bits, lady!"
Okay, the truth. My life is crazy hectic most days as I divide my time between family, friends, writing, and marketing while running our businesses and household. I spend an average of eight to twelve hours a day on the computer. Some of my favourite things are cats, tea, anything in purple, yaoi, dragons, watching anime and movies, and listening to my large collection of music. I will read just about anything, but my preferred genres are fantasy, thriller, romance, and science-fiction.
I'm a member of the RWA & RWA-GVC, I attend conferences and writing groups whenever time permits, and I've taken a number of writing courses. In my spare time I build websites and proof-read for other authors. I also format eBooks, and I'm learning to create book covers. In the near future, I hope to take an editing course.
Currently, I reside in British Columbia, Canada with my husband, our daughter, and son. Out eldest passed away, so he's with us in spirit.
What else can I tell you? Lots of things, but the most important tidbit, I'm passionate about my writing and plan to continue publishing. How many novels? Who knows, I guess until the ideas run dry.

This short story is a gripping, non-stop page tuner, and I couldn't get enough of Z and Brody. Their relationship is as dark as it is romantic, and full of secrets. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

If anyone wants a fast paced read that will keep you involved with the plot, the imagery and language so much you cannot put the book down until you read the last word, I suggest and highly recommend you read Blak Rayne’s new inspiring book, Kiss the Reaper. If you have ever lived under the dark side of life or have tendencies that way, like I did when I was young, you don’t want to miss out on Z’s infatuation with Brody. The author takes you on a rollercoaster ride of distinct imagery action so real to life you will think you know these characters personally. The author intertwines the dignity of life, no matter how deplorable a person lives, with the acceptance of death or murder for people deserving of that end. I felt a kinship for Z as the main character written from first person perspective. You will be swallowed emotionally in his love for Brody, the cold, aloof, dark character. Together from different worlds ruled by gangs and the government their relationship evolves into a passionate romance that will restore your faith in mankind. I would give this story a higher rating than 5-Stars if there was a higher value. But I will give Kiss the Reaper a solid 5-Stars, enthusiastically

You Won't Breathe Until the End ~ It is THAT Gripping
I have long been an avid fan of Blak Rayne. Her work is unbelievably phenomenal and always draws us into the world between her artful pages, submerging us in carefully selected words crafting a world none of us could even imagine. And yet she can. In Kiss the Reaper, she has written a very dark yet hopeful world of retribution, redemption, love and hope. How the Hell are all those contrasts even possible in one piece?! I don't know; you'd have to ask her. But, she does it and like an artist with a bare canvas, oils and brushes, she transforms her images into fast-paced words that are so moving, they latch onto us by our fears and curiosity and don't let go until the last page is turned and we sigh...wanting more..
The story is compelling, gripping, dark...and yet not, The words are strung together like jewels: carefully, artistically, one enhancing the other and in need of the other’s brilliance. Her way with words is, I don’t really know…magical? I saw everything she described and felt the tension, the relief, the resignation, the determination—the love and hope--the pain. I felt the rain pelting, felt the concrete sidewalk rise up to meet the face of a falling Z, I heard the approaching footsteps while my own terror mounted. Brody's calm determination was a frozen wave that washed over me. I didn't breathe for 5 chapters so I couldn't put it down. I had to find out how it ended so I could breathe again.
If you don't read this book, you will do yourself a tantalizing disservice on this emotional roller coaster that is her imagination. This book will bring you to the core of the dark side of human nature. But, there is promise in retribution; there is hope in redemption. In short? I friggin' loved this book and cannot wait for the next one. 5 stars plus!
