Thanks for coming to my page. About me, hmm? What to say? I was born in California, lived in England for a time, then settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Today much of my time is spent in the Land of Make Believe, visiting my characters, encouraging them to tell me their stories. Now they won’t shut the frak up! If you write, you know what I mean. If you don’t, you probably think I’m insane. Guess what? You’re right!
At ten, I moved to England for a year and half, living with my brother and sister-in-law who were stationed at Upper Heyford Air Force Base. I went to an English school in Chipping Norton. Being the only American in an all British school was quite the experience. It was here I was introduced to the world of fantasy—Lord of the Rings to be exact—as well as Celtic mythology. This experience forever influenced my love of reading—from fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and contemporary romance. And in case you’re wondering, I adore Harry Potter. Seriously, who doesn’t? If you don’t, uh, keep it to yourself.
I’d like to tell you writing has been my lifelong pursuit, that I’ve written all my life. But honestly, almost four years ago, I stumbled upon it by accident. Now, I can’t imagine my life without it. I’ve always had an active imagination but it never translated to the page. During an extended stay at home due to medical issues, and bored out of my skull, I sat down at my computer, and started writing memories from days gone by. Those memories turned into a story, and I started to wonder if I had it in me to write an entire novel. Encouraged by a writer friend I opened my mind and let characters have free rein. Before I knew it, months had passed and I was well into my first novel. Long story short, three and a half years later—and three rewrites—my first novel, Colour Wielders was complete and accepted by Curiosity Quills Press. The first book in the Heirs of the Magykal Realm will be published late in 2012 or early 2013.
Besides writing my other passions are my husband, my dogs, and Football. My team is the Miami Dolphins—sadly, I don’t have high hopes for the 2012-2013 season. Don’t be surprised when at least one of my blog posts, on Raver’s Rants and Raves, includes an outpouring of grief over the Fin’s performance, but I will try to keep my public dissatisfaction to a minimum. At least I have the Manning brothers. Though Peyton in Denver Bronco colors is just, well, disturbing.
I hope you enjoy your visits here, and in particular, enjoy my Comic Reviews. I look forward to connecting with new people and making friends. Can’t wait for your comments.
Cheers!

My Review:

This was such a great story, filled with courage, love,  hope, and despair. All the makings of a great story.
The book had me crying at times, asking questions and holding onto the last page obsorbing every last deail to the end. I loved and hated Quinn.  I loved her for many reasons, reasons I think a reader needs  to read the book to find out. I hated her for the bratiness she presented. Granted understood it, still it was a turn off for me. As for Arik I loved him in this book. He grew up and that was wonderful to watch. Part of growing up is making those hard decisions. Many like the one he faced where it is a yes or no question. Either answer leaving you in a no win situtation. 
Growing up with these types of stories I feel that Ms. Raver did a wonderful job putting the story together for a compelling read.  Great Job.
Put this on your TBR list readers.

Blurb/Synopsis:
Behind the Faerying Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where gods and creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess is hidden away.
Quinn Sinclair lives an ordinary life with her less-than-loving mother in Conifer, Colorado, clueless of her true nature. On the night of her birthday, a staggering betrayal sends her life spinning out-of-control. As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she is transported into a Magykal battle-forever changing her life.
Arik Morgaine—Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm—tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans. Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers.
Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks?

  1. Thank you so much for the review. I'm so glad you enjoy the story. Yes, I knew people wouldn't like Quinn for most of this story, but it was necessary. In Faithful Colours coming out later this year, you'll see Quinn in a totally different light and Arik will have a few tricks up his sleeve as well!
