I got started writing paranormal stories after having read a multitude of them. I figured I would try my hand at them, especially since I wanted to get back into writing. My ultimate favorite paranormal is any type of shifter story, especially werewolves. However, I do like the occasional vampire story. I got started on these stories because of the Twilight series, it piqued my interest in werewolves.

When I started writing my husband was and still is all for it even if he doesn’t care for the m/m aspect of my stories. I typically listen to any type of upbeat music to try and get the writing juices flowing and keep them that way. Unfortunately, I do have the occasional bout of writer’s block just like any other writer. I have found that if I work on a writing prompt and walk away from my story for a little while I am usually able to get back to it quickly.

Writing has gotten fun because my 11-month-old puppy has decided that when I am on the couch the place for her head is on my keyboard right next to the power button. This has caused the periodic times of my computer shutting off while I am in the middle of writing. Thankfully, I have it set up to auto save frequently because of these situations.

I don’t actually have a writing routine per se. I tend to write whenever I have the chance and am in the mood to write. I usually sit with my feet up on the couch with a mug of coffee on the table and my headphones in as I listen to music on my computer. I try to make sure that I take time to do some reading because you never know when an idea may strike and it helps to get me thinking about what type of characters I will develop, the situations that my characters will get themselves into, how they will get out of it, and how they will deal with everything they are feeling.

About Your Alpha, My Mate

Jamie is a shifter.
But he can't shift. That's what he wants his pack to think.
Truth is, Jamie is a white wolf. The biggest, best, strongest kind of wolf. He refuses to shift because his pack, and his parents, treat him as a misfit. An outcast. And when he takes matters into his own hands by fleeing to join the Lonestar Pack, his fate is already determined.
There will be sacrifice.
There will be war.
There will be death.
Above all, there will be love.
And love always wins.

Exclusive Excerpt
“You ready to go in the water?” I asked. “Let me take care of these for you. I want to see all of you.” He dropped to his knees taking my pants and shoes with him, then stood up, taking hold of my cock. He moved his free hand down and across my back and nipped my ear playfully. My body heated up as he tweaked one of my nipples gently, and I released a moan. He didn‟t hesitate at all before taking one of my nipples gently into his mouth.
I reached over, unbuttoned his pants and removed his jeans. I knelt before him and licked his precum that leaked out. As I licked, he reached down, grabbed a handful of my hair, and moaned loudly.
I licked slowly at first, but was soon licking faster. After a few minutes, he reluctantly pushed me away, helped me stand up, and pulled me in for a long, hard kiss.
He broke the kiss and assisted me in lying down on the soft grass. He kissed his way down my body, making sure to pay attention to each nipple. He continued his journey down my chest and down to my hips. He placed kisses on both hips and moved to my straining cock.
When his mouth enveloped my cock, it felt like I was in heaven. I reached down and ran my fingers through his hair as he bobbed his head up and down, I could feel his gag reaction but he recovered quickly. He would occasionally move his attention to my balls.
He held his hand up to my mouth and had me suck on a finger to get it slick. I went up and down for a few minutes before he took his hand away then rubbed his finger over my hole, trying to gain entrance.
“Relax for me babe, this may hurt at first, but I promise it‟ll feel good soon.”

About Rachel Ravenheart

Rachel Ravenheart is new to the literary world, but has had the desire to write since she was in junior high school. She moved from a small town in Iowa in time to start high school in Louisiana.

Rachel lost sight of writing as she got bogged down with sports and school. Her dream of being a writer forgotten as she looked to the future to study Political Science with the hope of going to law school when she moved to Texas.

To make her way in the world she got wrapped up in the field of nursing when she got a job as a C.N.A. and soon even her dream of law school was forgotten. Strangely, thanks to an injury she was at home recuperating and was bored when she remembered her love for writing. Never thinking she would ever get published she began.

It was writers like Rob Colton, Mann Ramblings, and Alicia Nordwell that inspired her creativity. She found and after some encouragement she decided to post her first story. With the enthusiasm of readers her confidence grew and she took the step to send off her first story to be published. It was with great delight when she was offered her first contract. Hopefully, the first of many.
