Rae Griffin


I have no published books. WattPad is currently the only place to view my works in their "polished" format. I have joined Smashwords as a means of making my works more available without use of internet connection. I am knowledgable in writing in four languages but currently I only write in English because my fluency has not enabled me to translate complex ideas and idioms over language barriers. Any comments or inquiries are welcomed.

Obrigada e tchau.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was about seven years old. The first piece I remember vividly was when I was in third grade. I wrote a song, "A Song for MJ". I was really into P!nk at that time. I still read over it occasionally and I have wanted to add instruments to it for years.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Somewhere in between 'Kill Bill' and the movie adaptation of Jason Bourne, I began to wonder how a reluctant female assassin would behave if her loyalty were taken into question.

Carmen is one such heroine. She in young, and a little naive on how the "real world" works. But because of her bloodied childhood she sees mundane themes of corporate wold and Starbucks coffee as thrilling and welcomed.

As a novice mixd martial artist, I enjoy envisioning the fight scenes. And similar to the Bourne series, I attempt to keep them short and effective, yet realistic. You will never see a palm strike to the nose in my writing. That never causes death. It is physically impossible for the human body to exert that much force, and a blunt object, like a bat, won't have the focus to land the blow 99% percent of the time. Sure it sounds cool, but it is a bogus move.
