Rachelle Reese also started writing fiction as a child. She has a Master's degree in English and has had several short stories published in magazines and anthologies. Her most recent was published in "The Bitter End: Tales of Nautical Terror" in 2009.
John E. Miller started telling stories after his brother got him interested in fantasy role-playing over 30 years ago. Since then he's entertained legions at the game table.
John and Rachelle are married and live deep in the woods, where fairies flutter through the trees and spirits whisper in the wind. They are the co-authors of two short story collections: "Bones of the Woods" and "Mind of a Mad Man". They read their fiction on the "Shadow Realms" podcast and publish living novels on textnovel.com.

The Reunion was my first venture into the urban fantasy, paranormal romance genre. To be honest, I was not sure just what constituted an urban-fantasy-paranormal-romance. Stephen King meets Danielle Steele? As it turns out, I need not have wondered. The Reunion is a delightful tale!
Fans of paranormal romance may be familiar with the popular Dime Store Novel Series featuring an engaging cast of characters who captivate and enchant readers through five novels (thus far). The latest, The Reunion, provides a much-anticipated arc featuring Toledo Cats and Hanover Fist as young adults, but readers new to the series will enjoy The Reunion as a standalone story in itself.
From the opening chapter, The Reunion grabs the reader’s attention and refuses to loosen its grip until the final pages. A young woman’s coming of age, navigating through new and dangerous dimensions contrasts with the journey of a young man, unaware of his true heritage, battling evil with every ounce of his human being. A mother, whose love for her child causes her to put her life on hold, yearns to be reunited with the love of her life while ancient enemies conspire and seek every option to seize her soul.
Reese and Miller’s prose pulls the reader into new realms, skillfully combining scenes of everyday life with the unexpected nymph, fairy or otherworldly intruder. Just enough back-story is provided to enable a new reader to jump into the series midway, allowing a basic understanding and history of key characters appearing in the prior Dimes Store Novels. The pace is quick, the action non-stop, pushing the reader from page to page. This is a story that begs to be read in one sitting. Beware—chores may not get done; sleep may be postponed until the final page is turned! And do not resist the urge to go back and read the other books in the series—you’ll be delighted by these, as well!
Paranormal? Yes. Fantasy? Definitely. But the story and the themes depicted in The Reunion are universal—the innocence of youth, accepting one’s destiny, the willingness to sacrifice oneself for a greater love.
