Short bio
I was born and raised in Idaho, a place secretly known for its supernatural creatures. When I’m not in my writing lair, I’m partying with my husband and four small children. My love for storytelling began as a child when the moon first possessed the night. For when the lights went out, my imagination painted a whole new world. And what a scary world it was…

1.       Where's the strangest place you've ever written?

I’ve written in many different places because with four small children I have to write wherever I can. I write in the gym frequently. I’ve also written in forests, graveyards, McDonalds, movie theaters, the emergency room… I love my AlphaSmart!

2.       What book do you wish you had written?

My answer varies based on what I’m currently writing. Right now I wish I wrote Mary Shelley’s, Frankenstein, or The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.

3.       What inspires you? 

Music. Dark, moody stuff. Or what I like to call Warrior Music, which is just powerhouse instrumental, classical type stuff. That doesn’t make any sense so just check out James Dooley, Epic Score or Tom Salta and you’ll know what I mean. Listening to this type of music makes for the best action scenes.

4.       When did you start writing?

I’ve always dabbled in writing, but in 2007, while standing on the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, I made a commitment to make writing a permanent part of my life. Before that I lacked the confidence. Something in Ireland made me believe in myself.

5.       Tell us three things about you that aren’t about writing.

I like to ride dirt bikes. Skydiving is awesome. I love taking my four kids on adventures.

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.

In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end
