For seventeen-year-old Evan, graduation means the freedom to leave behind her small-town life and find where she belongs. She never expected it to be in a different world.

Across time and space, deep in a mysterious jungle, Evan discovers the hidden heritage of her mother’s people and her own legacy. She becomes their elemental, a protector gifted with the power to control nature. The role has its challenges, but the biggest is the inexplicable connection with her scarred bodyguard, Ren. Frustrated and fascinated by him, Evan resists the magnetic pull after realizing there’s more to it than simple attraction.

Claiming her birthright reignites the wrath of a ruthless enemy with a score to settle. To protect her new family, Evan will need to call on her formidable power. But embracing it could cause her to lose herself and the man who holds her heart.

About Rae:
I'm super excited to talk with readers and answer any questions you might have. My debut, Successor, is scheduled to release on 10/24/18, and I can't wait to share it with all of you!

A little about me. I love reading, especially romance. I'm one of those people who needs a least a little bit of romance in a story for it to really catch my attention. I also love YA, and probably have more favorite authors in the genre than in romance.

When I'm not writing or reading, I'm usually watching movies--I have probably 800+ in my collection by now. I've recently gotten into painting, which I'm quickly falling in love with. I tend to be a bit crafty, so if I'm doing a giveaway, chances some of my handmade items will be included! I'm almost always listening to music, and my tastes are pretty eclectic. I also have 3 cats, which Successor is actually dedicated to!

That's enough about me for now. I'd love to hear from you! I can also be found on twitter and on my website.

Author Interview:

Do all authors have to be grammar Nazis?
Not at all. It’s helpful with edits and revisions, of course, but I think it can drive people a little nuts doing it all the time. Especially around other people because, let’s be honest, most non-writers don’t care about grammar. To each their own!
If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why?
I don’t think I could choose one because chances are I wouldn’t love the story as much as I do. Writers don’t get to experience their own stories for the first time like their readers do, so they don’t have an initial impression. It’s sad, really. Writers can love their characters and stories, but would they really like their stories if they had the chance to experience them like a normal reader? It’s a very different experience.
What makes this particular genre you are involved in so special?
Fantasy is great because it allows the writer to create a world with its own rules. There are very few limits, save for what the writer sets. Almost anything is possible!
Do you have a set schedule for writing, or are you one of those who write only when they feel inspired?
I’m more the inspiration type, which can be tough when I’m going through a dry spell. Writing takes discipline, and I’m always working on mine.
What is the most important thing about a book in your opinion?
The characters need to feel real. They need to be flawed. They need dreams, fears, people they love (and some they love to hate). If a character has no real depth, then their journey has no meaning to me. I need a reason to root for them.

3 Winners will receive a finished copy of SUCCESSOR and handmade swag from Rae, US Only.
