I am a reclusive author in New Zealand who writes Paranormal Women's Fiction under the pen name Raven Raine. I write novels in other genres under another name (or names). Plenty of other genres.
I live with my partner, two children and two cats. I write by a window with a beautiful cherry blossom tree spread out before me, a steaming cup of coffee on the desk within easy reach, and the grating sound of cat claws on the furniture in the room behind. Frequently, either of the cats will sit on the desk or keyboard while I try to write.
