Rachel Rawlings

Let me introduce you to Rachel Rawlings…

Screenshot_2015-02-18-08-57-39-1

Rachel Rawlings was born and raised in the Baltimore Metropolitan area. Her family, originally from Rhode Island, spent summers in New England sparking her fascination with Salem, MA. She has been writing fictional stories and poems since middle school, but it wasn’t until 2009 ago that she found the inspiration to create her heroine Maurin Kincaide and complete her first full length novel, The Morrigna.

When she isn’t writing, Rachel can often be found with her nose buried in a good book. An avid reader of Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Horror and Steampunk herself, Rachel founded Hallowread- an interactive convention for both authors and fans of those genres. More information on Hallowread, its schedule of events and participating authors can be found at www.hallowread.blogspot.com andwww.facebook.com/Hallowread. She still lives in Maryland with her husband and three children.

Can you tell us who you are and what genre(s) you write in?

I write Urban Fantasy with a blend of Horror. Or, depending on who you ask, Horror with and Urban Fantasy blend.

Pick one topic you think somehow sets you apart and tell us about it. Be it the twist you always incorporate into your stories, or how you build your novel. Is there something different about how you approach your writing that you would like to share?

I am a pantser. For those of you not familiar with the term, it means I write by the seat of my pants. I have a very general idea of the story, often knowing how I want to start and where I want to end up but the middle? Well that sort of happens on its own. The characters often have a very different idea of what’s supposed to happen.

What are the books you have published to date? What books can we expect to see in the near future?

I currently have 3 full length novels, one novella and a short in my Maurin Kincaide series. The Morrigna, Witch Hunt, Wolfsbane, Blood Bath and Mistletoe Meltdown. I’m actually releasing another book in the series on the 13th, Ill Fated. After that I plan to work on a few stand alone novels. My to be written list is almost as big as my to be read pile. I love catching up on my reading when I first release a novel. It’s my reward!

Please share any awards, honors, etc. that you have received.

Maurin Kincaide is a psychometric investigator for Salem’s Supernatural Task Force. She’s spent the last few years working crime scenes and using the memory links in fingerprints to catch criminals.

When the current bad guy turns out to be a demon, Maurin must work with Seamus–the task force’s prime suspect for unleashing said demon. She follows Seamus deeper into the supernatural community and discovers there’s a lot more going on than anyone guessed.

Our unique investigator is quickly enlisted from her day job by the Council, a secret governing body of all things Other. They want her to find out more about the abundance of demons in Salem and who might be controlling them.

Maurin Kincaide is back in this action-packed follow-up novel to The Morrigna. No longer a member of Salems Preternatural Task Force, Maurin is the new liaison for the Council, governing body of Others. During what should have been a routine meeting with her former captain, Maurin is brought in on a murder investigation. Three dead witches, three cryptic clues, no sign of the killers, and the Salem coven is losing allies within the Council. If Maurin and her unlikely partner Captain Matthison can’t stop the killers, the Witch City might be without its namesake.

Given the choice between her sister’s wedding and witnessing the challenge for Alpha of the Salem pack, Maurin knows exactly where she’d rather be. Smack dead center in a pack of snarling werewolves wearing eau de filet mignon.

A serial killer in Salem? Not for decades, but the bodies are piling up and all signs point in one direction. Rogue vampire. Except things aren’t always what they seem, especially in a murder investigation.

With her current relationship on the rocks, her father playing match-maker and her neighbor tossing his hat in the ring, the body count isn’t the only thing on the rise. Maurin is neck deep in magic, mayhem and murder.

Can she catch the killer before the killer catches her? One things for certain, when hunting vampires there will be blood.

Some things are destined to end in death. After the first attempt on her life Maurin wasn’t scared. Hell, she was almost flattered. But someone put a price on her head and things are getting complicated. Trouble is brewing in the fae courts and it’s spilling over into Salem. The UnSeelie Dark Guard have answered the call for her head on a platter and people closest to her are disappearing.

Can Maurin master court politics and find her missing men before someone claims the bounty on her head?
