BOOK TITLE: Fantasies Unbound
PUBLISHER: Secret Cravings Publishing
Tell me a little about your book.
RD: Fantasies Unbound is my version of opposites attract-namely fairies and humans. I love the fae and the myths that surround them. Plus I fell in love with creating a mythical ‘legend’ that centers on a Fae Prince and a Faberge Egg.
What gave you the idea for this particular story?
RD: I actually just finished reading a story on the makings of the famed Faberge Eggs and wanted to see if I can incorporate them in some way in a story.
Are you a full-time writer or part-time, and how do you organize your writing time?
RD: I write when I find time. I have two day jobs, two busy kids and a honey so I try to write whenever I have 30 minutes free.
When did you first know you wanted to be a writer?
RD: When I read my first book and went ‘hmmm I can do better’.
What do you hope readers will take from your writing?
RD: That love is universal, be if you are a fairy, shape shifter or human.
Which genres do you write, which do you prefer, and why?
RD: I am branching out from paranormal but that is my first love. I am currently creating a Science Fiction/Futuristic ménage (M/M/F) that has me excited and my Muse gave me several story ideas for future books in M/M, Paranormal and Contemporary genres.
What is the toughest part about being a writer and how do you get past it?
RD: Writer’s block. When my muse decides it’s a great time for a vacation and leaves me high and dry. He seems to come back when I offer it chocolate and have sufficiently banged my head against the wall before he takes pity on me.
Is there anything in your story based upon a real life event? If so, tell me about it.
RD: Nope all imagination for Fantasies Unbound.
How much is your protagonist like you? How different?
RD: Actually I am kinda like Skye where I have body image issues & am not a size 2/model thin. I have curves so I wanted to portray her as a real woman, so to speak. The one we see on the streets, work with and are friends with. Not those walking down a run way with stick thin bodies, no curves and bragging about their size 0 jeans.
What kind of research did you do for this type of story?
RD: I just went with it and hoped for the best.
What about your book makes it special?
RD: That even opposites can find love with someone.
Where can people learn more about you and your work?
RD: I am all over the web. Follow me at the following places:

What’s in the future for you?
RD: I have my Science Fiction Ménage that I plan to finish and send into a publisher, then it’s onto a new Devon Falls book, a MM Cowboy/Holiday story and then who knows….My muse is itching to try new things.
Raine Delight loves to be pampered by her harem of men that exist solely for her pleasure. Wait…..that was in a movie she saw. Hey, she can dream. Raine loves to fight with her muse, attack her manuscripts and find a way to silence the many voices in her head. Inspiration hits at odd times and for Raine, a blank word document page gives her many possibilities on story ideas. Living with her two kids, a significant other who supports her every move in writing and doesn’t seem to mind she gets up at 2 am to type away on the computer. With a love for Johnny Depp, movies and 80’s hair bands, Raine finds a way to bring all her chaotic thoughts into a story that tells her readers about love and romance.
