Author Interview & Book Giveaway: Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan

Welcome to Author Rachel McClellan


My mind only knows how to write. Other people perform simple tasks like cleaning their house or using the bathroom without a distracting thought.

I can’t.

Yesterday I meant to vacuum, but ended up scrubbing blood out of my carpet instead. The body’s still in the freezer. And when I went to take a shower, a little girl in a red dress and pigtails appeared to me in the vanity mirror. Again. I wish she would go away.

See what I mean? My life is a story and the only way to stay sane is write it all down. I only hope others can find joy in my insanity.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Crepes stuffed with cream cheese, dusted with powdered sugar, and drizzled with fresh strawberry syrup. A piece of heaven.

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world. which would it be? 
Harry Potter all the way! I wonder what my wand would be made out of?
If a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play the lead role and why? 
Angelie Jolie because she would make me look good.
Favorite music? 
Red, Chevelle, Perfect Circle, Tool, Metallica
Truth or Dare? 
I dare you to dare me.
Favorite quote from a movie? 
“Killin’ is as easy as breathin’.”
Do you prefer a bunch of small gifts or one big expensive one? 
Small gifts. Like on Christmas I always prefer my stocking filled with little goodies over my wrapped gifts. It’s the same reason why I love artichokes; every layer offers new yummy goodness.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I once played the role of McBeth (yeah, the dude part) in my high school play.
What’s the craziest writing idea you’ve had?
One day I overheard a joke about Eve being made from one of Adam’s ribs. This got me thinking. What happened to the other rib? God obviously didn’t take just one of Adam’s ribs otherwise he’d be all lop-sidey. In my imagination, God tossed the rib aside. His touch gave it great power, and I envisioned the rib bone becoming a powerful weapon of some kind that’s sought after throughout time. Anyway, I thought about doing something based around that. This is just one of many warped idea’s I’ve had.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects? 
I’m just finishing up the sequel to Fractured Light, and am editing another work in progress tenitevely titled UNLEASHED. It’s sort of a YA version of Jekyl and Hyde.

Fractured Light

I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice.
Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.
As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.
In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.
