Raven Corinn Carluk says talking about herself is much harder than writing a book. You’d think a wordmistress wouldn’t have such a problem, but she does. Let her rework a flat scene any day.
Simple background: She’s married, has lots of pets, still works full time, and grew up in Las Vegas.
But there’s so much more to a person than that.
Writing is more than just words on paper to her. It’s a passion, an incessant need, a deep-seated drive to be a storyteller. She knew she wanted to be an author as far back as high school. Writing may have taken a backseat a few times, but she finally made it.
Her stories have bite because she’s a little different, and like slightly different things. No shock horror here, or cheap gimmicks meant to offend, or pandering to the latest trend. Her vampires love human blood, her dragons hunt people, and her elves are magical and arrogant.
Romance and darkness will always go together for Raven. Love really can get you through anything, as she knows from personal experience. Her characters will always have that glimmer of new love, that bond with a soulmate, and will do anything to be with their one and only.
When she’s not busy having things killed. Being deeply romantic doesn’t mean she’s not also a violent or twisted writer. Fight scenes, bloodshed, dark magic, and triumphant villains all have their places in her tales.
She’ll never apologize for who she is. Sometimes abrasive and uncouth, full of contradictions and juxtaposition, she is merely who she is.
And what she is is a storyteller wanting to craft new entertainments for you.
