Biography

I first started using a pseudonym, Rachael Silver, before coming to my senses. I always loved the concept of a good 'story' and I think the idea of a story is born from deep inside our social genetic makeup. When I think of the term story, I think of caveman fires, explaining the reasons behind storms, death, the hunt. I think of how the concept has changed over time to incorporate cautionary tales, inform or disfigure history, and to what I have come to love as a part of myself now.
When I first started, I had a burning image in my mind of a guy driving down the freeway to get away from it all. Putting this image on paper, led from one to another until the first Novella, Night Driving was finished. I liked the short punchy nature of the novella format, and moved on the the next three, all leading from the first. Eventually I compiled the four interrelated stories into one compendium - Matthias.

After the first book, I wanted to take on the challenge of an actual novel, and so, Asatru started being written. Asatru ended up being renamed Finding Rachael, with the screenplay being a finalist in A Night of Horror Film Festival in 2013. This novel took a different path however - writing from 3 people's perspectives. Definately fun, and very different from Matthias.

Next up was Talent, told from a third person narrative, and all about an immortal witch with 'relationship issues' with an underlord and the need to anchor to a mismatched group of strangers in a fight for survival.

Then came The Kindred, which I carried through by also making a book trailer and soon to be movie following on from the screenplay being selected as a finalist in A Night of Horror film festival again in 2013.

In my latest book, The Shape of Wrath, we meet a near future world where those with supernatural talents and the 'Normals' live in a divided society. It has it all, the princess in the tower, the reluctant warrior, the pull between head, heart, choice and fate in a trist for ultimate power.

There are still many ideas brewing which are yet to come from an accidental serial killer to a heavenly battle for souls... all in good time.

In all my books, I like to keep a running link from the last book, even if it is very small/passing in nature. If you're game, see if you can find the link along the way.

Hope you enjoy!
