rachel caine books title

Hey everyone! I am very happy to welcome to my little blog one of my favorite Paranormal authors ever! Being it Paranormal YA or Urban Fantasy, Rachel Caine certainly rocks!

Rachel has been awesome to answer my q’s and she is also offering a lucky winner a SIGNED copy of “Ghost Town”, the most recent Morganville Vampires book, YAY!

Giveaway details are right after the interview… enjoy!


When did you first start writing?

I wrote my first original story (that wasn't for a class) when I was 14 years old. 

Have you always enjoyed Fantasy? Unseen-Rachel-Caine-August-2010-Reveal-Release-Feb-2011

Always. It, and science fiction, were my favorite genres from a very early age. 

Why writing Urban Fantasy?

I've always been writing it, even before it had a name (and when publisher thought it was too weird to sell!) ... I like the interaction of normal life with magic. If you think about it, novels we think of as "historical" were actually "urban fantasy" when they were written, like Dracula and Frankenstein. I think it's very natural.

Were there any Books, Movies or Writers that have inspired you?

Many, many, too many to list. If I had to choose, I'd say Roger Zelazny's Amber series in books, Indiana Jones in movies!

What is your favorite subject in the Urban Fantasy Realm?

I suppose I'm expected to say vampires, but I don't really know that I have one. I think it's probably not one subject, it's the flexibility of the genre as a whole.

Which do you prefer to write? Your adult novels of your YA ones?

I love them both, for different reasons, but I confess that the YA novels tend to be more fun!


zel8 Favorite Paranormal themed Movie? Pirates of the Caribbean! 

Favorite Paranormal themed TV Show? Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Favorite Paranormal themed Book? Those Who Hunt The Night, Barbara Hambly

Favorite Author? Roger Zelazny

Favorite Urban Fantasy Author? Roger Zelazny :)

Favorite Genre that is NOT your own? Historical mystery 

Favorite one of your Books? Eeek, I don't know ... probably Feast of Fools. 

Who is your favorite of your own characters?

It's a tie between Shane and Myrnin (in Morganville) ... Shane because I always know what he's doing, and Myrnin because I never know what he's doing. In Weather Wardens, I think it's probably Lewis, because he's secretly such a stud. :)

Which was the hardest to write?

Firestorm (Weather Warden) - because I was undergoing cancer treatments at the time.

Rachel Caine Ghost TownWhat would you be if not a writer?

I'm pretty sure I'd be a musician, which was my first love.

If you Could be a Paranormal Being, Who would you be?

A genie (Djinn)! 

If you could meet ay Urban Fantasy Character out there, Who would you like to meet?

No question about it: Harry Dresden (Jim Butcher)!


Coffee or Tea? Coffee!

Up or Down? Up! 

Virtual or Real? Hmmm ... real, barely. 

Right or Left? Right, sadly.

Day or Night? Day 

Here or There? No matter where you go, there you are.  n6289

Sooner or Later? Later! 

Light or Dark? Dark! 

Fast or Slow? Fast

Vampires or Werewolves? Vampires, baby 

Angels or Demons? Angels 

Weather Wardens or Djinns? Ouch! ... um, Djinn. (Ducks) 

Reading or Writing? Writing, but just by a hair 

What is your favorite part of the writing process? Writing an ending 

What is your least favorite part? Writing the middle 

The Weather Warden/Outcast Season Series in your own words?

Joanne Baldwin is a woman on the run, after it seems that she's murdered her boss ... but she's not just any fugitive. She's part of an organization that controls the weather, and other forces of the earth ... an organization that's coming after her. She'll have to rely on her wits, her power, and a mysterious (and sexy) Djinn named David to outwit, outplay and outlast her enemies, who range from Wardens to Djinn to the vast (and hostile) intelligence of Nature Herself.

rachel_caine-totaleclipseIn Outcast Season, Cassiel is a Djinn cast out from the ranks of the supernatural and forced to live as a human, among the Wardens ... but she's been sent back for a reason, to counter an evil on the rise that presents a threat even graver than that of the hostile Earth. It will take all her ingenuity, and her bravery, to make the sacrifices the Djinn expect of her.

The Morganville Vampire Series in your own words?

Claire is a new advanced placement student at Texas Prairie University, a run-down, dusty college in Morganville, Texas. It's tough enough when she runs afoul of the local mean girls in a life-threatening confrontation, but things go from bad to worse when she discovers that Morganville isn't just a town with a secret ... it's a town with vampires who control every aspect of human life inside its borders. Salvation comes in the form of Claire's new friends at the Glass House -- Eve, Shane and Michael -- but each of them hides secrets of their own, and some of them are dangerous. Morganville brings Claire adventure, terror, love and an unexpected sense of belonging ... but no matter how bad things get, one thing is certain: in this town, it can always get worse. 

Any plans for more Books in the Morganville Vampire and the Outcast series?

Outcast is ending with four books ... that was how I planned it! Morganville is definitely going to 12 books for sure. We'll see how it goes after that!

Are we going to see David and Jo in the next Outcast books?

Yes, in Book 4!

What is coming up next for you? bite-club

I just finished the 10th Morganville book, BITE CLUB, and I'm working on the first book of a new adult urban fantasy series, The Revivalist. The first book is called WORKING STIFF.

What are you working on right now?

(I think I just answer that above. ;) 

Do you have any advice or tip to those that want to become a published Author someday?

The best advice I have is to be patient. Writing is the most important part of being an author, but it's not the only part ... You have to learn the business of publishing, and how to build your career, and it takes time and stamina. Work hard, and learn. There's really no substitute! 

Anything you would like to say to your fans out there?

My readers are the GREATEST. Thank you all, so much, for being so enthusiastic and excited about Morganville and the Wardens and Outcast and everything else ... it makes me so happy to be a writer, and it also makes me want to keep on going, even when things are tough. You keep me working, and you keep me honest. I thank you so much! 

Thank you so much for being here!
