Rae B. Lake

I am THE next favorite author because I think outside the box. A mix of old and new.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
What I enjoy most about writing is the new ideas that pop into my head as the words flow out of me, the twist and turns that I take the reader and characters on, and even the excitement I have when someone reads some of my work and enjoys it. I love to write and hope that I can put a smile or leave an impression with someone else.

Rae is a Mother, Wife, Nurse, Novelist, Explorer, Animal Activist, and a Daydreamer. She spends most of her days with her head in the clouds and is happy to be there. She feels a good story can change a person's world even if it is only for a day.

Promo Tip

Promo Tip: Bring copies of your book everywhere you go. Let people see it. Have a pitch ready when people ask about it.
We have a little lending library in our neighborhood. I place my books there on the regular. (I'm still not good at selfies)

Stephane Barr

I write great characters in difficult spots you can fall in love with. And cats and dragons, often in pivotal roles.

If you were to ask me my "interesting" writing quirk, I'd probably ask you which one you meant? The cats in every book? The dragons? The snarky humor? But, really, what's oddest about the way I write is that what comes out in the first draft is really close to what I have in my last draft. My subconscious does all of the work. That's convenient and saves a lot of time on editing—yes, I still miss stuff but it's more my fingers missing, not my brain—but also means I'm not one of those writers who can sit down and just write a thousand words every day on her favorite work in progress. If I try to force writing, what comes out is garbage. If I wait until my subconscious has cooked it up nicely and is ready to serve it, what comes out tickles the snot out of me. And usually not just me. I might not write any fiction for eight months and then pump out a novel in a month and a half while still working my day job. On the other hand, it does take over all my waking and free hours when the mood is on me. And more than once has woken me in the wee hours to pound out a short story or something.

Stephanie Barr is a part time novelist, full time rocket scientist, mother of three children and slave to many cats. She has three blogs, which are sporadically updated: Rocket Scientist, Rockets and Dragons, and The Unlikely Otaku. Anything else even vaguely interesting about her can be found in her writing since she puts a little bit of herself in everything she writes . . . just not the same piece. Keep up with new releases and events by signing up for my newsletter on any of my blogs or check out my author page on Facebook

                You can buy the books at:
                You can follow me on facebook at Dragonfaerie Creative Enterprises
                You can follow me on twitter @stephanieebarr and I'm on Goodreads
                I have a writing blog where you can also sign up for my newsletter at Rockets and Dragons
                You could also take a quiz to find out which protagonist of mine you might be like here.

I have some beautiful covers, really and I couldn't choose, so here are most of them in one spot.

Book Spotlight: Keys to the Shadowlands


The Shadowlands lie behind a hidden locked door within the Superior Crow Judge’s Chambers. Kidnapped souls are imprisoned there. These souls will be tormented by all their transgressions, and the parts of themselves that they denied will be magnified ten times. Xander Veh, one of three Indigo Travelers, is called to find his former rival’s lost soul. To do so, Xander has to enter in his mortal form. He’s been warned to do so could drive him crazy, as all the parts of himself that are buried deep within his psyche will surface for him to either face or deny. It could drive him insane, never to see his home world, family or friends again.
