Okay, boys and girls: it's time to give some of my favorite authors a little horn tooting. Some of the great people, like Rachel Rawlings who is one of my ladies in my woman in Horror series, I have spot lighted before, and there's nothing wrong with that. Great authors deserve great praise. Rachel certainly does.

Rachel Rawlings is writing a fabulous series of kick-ass horror novels with an urban fantasy blend and possessing a strong female lead. I can feel those heels now. Ouch! Leather and lace, but more naughty than nice. Hey: Demons need someone to keep them in check. Maurin is the lady for the job. I clipped the bio below from her Amazon page.

Rachel Rawlings was born and raised in the Baltimore Metropolitan area. Her family, originally from Rhode Island, spent summers in New England, sparking her fascination with Salem, MA. She has been writing fictional stories and poems since middle school, but it wasn't until three years ago that she found the inspiration to create her heroine Maurin Kincaide and complete her first full length novel, The Morrigna. She is currently working on Witch Hunt, book two of The Maurin Kincade Series, with book three Blood Bath not far behind it. She still lives in Maryland with her husband, three children and two fish.

Below is a book description for book #one in the series,The Morrigna.

Maurin Kincaide is a psychometric investigator for Salem's Supernatural Task Force. She's spent the last few
years working crime scenes and using the memory links in fingerprints to catch criminals.

When the current bad guy turns out to be a demon, Maurin must work with Seamus--the task force's prime
suspect for unleashing said demon. She follows Seamus deeper into the supernatural community and discovers there's a lot more going on than anyone guessed.

Our unique investigator is quickly enlisted from her day job by the Council, a secret governing body of all things Other. They want her to find out more about the abundance of demons in Salem and who might be controlling them...

This is some really cool stuff here! Get a sample read on Amazon or the Indie Book Lounge. This is a big book, filled with action, mystery, horror, suspense, and a bunch of other things. READ THIS PLEASE!



  1. I imagine growing up around Salem would have an interesting effect on a child with a horror story inclined mind such as ours :)

    I missed your promotion for Rachel the first go 'round, so I'm glad I stopped by and caught it today. The Maurigna sounds like an interesting concept, and the cover art is very eye-catching. I'll go check out that excerpt.

  2. Rachel is indeed an interesting lady, Paul. Her stories are upper crust. And by the way: if you spell her title wrong again, that kick-ass lead of hers could put those heels in a bad place. Just saying.
