Spinner of Suspense

Raquel is the bestselling author of critically acclaimed suspense series, The Shades of Hope trilogy, Gothic duology, The Noble Island Mysteries, and epic SciFi/Steampunk series, The Blackburn Chronicles.


When she's not writing she can be seen geeking out over sci-fi movies, reading anything she can get her hands on, and having arguments about the television series Firefly in coffee shops. She lives in Southern California with her husband, six kids, and various reptiles.

Raquel is currently working on a suspense thriller set in the near-future.
