Haven Raines

Publisher info

I was born and grew up in Decatur, Illinois in a middle class family. My mother and three aunts were avid readers of Harlequin romances, which is where I get my love for reading. Currently, I resides in northeast Missouri with the best husband anyone could have, 6 rabbits, 3 dogs, 3 ducks, and 21 chickens. My 3 daughters, 13 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren are the delight of my life.

I am a nurse practitioner with a belief in alternative therapies. I work in a Rural Clinic Family practice and have published three textbooks for nurse practitioners. I am a certified hypnotherapist, aromatherapist and would love to own and operate a resort spa someday in the future.

Currently, I have finished my second thriller under the pseudonym, M R Elgin, I have plans for a set of middle grade adventure stories based on my grandson's escapades. Together with my husband, I am working on picture books for the younger set.
