About the Author
Rachelle Reese has been making up stories for over 40 years. Her earliest stories were acted out by Barbie, Skipper, and Ken. Now her stories are acted out by the voices in her head. She has an MA in English from San Jose State University, where she wrote poetry and fiction. She ran the Art @ 8 open poetry readings and performed frequently at galleries and other venues. She is a self-taught programmer and was the first student at SJSU to complete her thesis as an interactive work of fiction. After meeting her husband and frequent co-author, John E. Miller, she began role-playing. Many of their story ideas and characters emerge during a game of Dungeons and Dragons, Call of Cthulhu, or World of Darkness. However, the mythos of their world is their own. Rachelle writes fantasy, paranormal urban fantasy, and a bit of horror. She and John are the authors of two short story collections: Bones of the Woods and Mind of a Mad Man. They are also the authors of the Dime Store Novel urban fantasy series. Rachelle has published several short stories in anthologies. Her latest was "The Rescue," published in The Bitter End: Tales of Nautical Terror. Rachelle also writes training courses and certification prep materials for programmers, network administrators, and computer support professionals. Rachelle lives with her husband in rural Missouri. They raise cattle and donkeys. They are devoted to their dogs...who pretty much run the household. She enjoys a good dry wine, immersing herself in a book, dancing, and long walks in the woods. She has recently taken up quilting. She blogs at http://rachelleandjohn.blogspot.com. The Dime Store Novel characters blog at http://dimestorenovel.blogspot.com.

Each character is introduced and provided just enough description and action to pull the reader into the door. Fast-paced, with twists and the unexpected, Rips is one of those “can’t put down until it’s finished” novels. By the end of the book, spiders that talk, nymphs that can change shapes, an alligator who can communicate telepathically with her creatures, and warring gods that interact with humans not only became “real’” but also pull the reader toward the second in this series, The Desert Rose. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
If you’re a fan of this genre, grab this book—you are in for a treat. If, like me, you are new to the sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal, invest a few hours in an experience that you will not soon forget!
What I like about a good fantasy is that you concentrate on the characters and the storyline. That concentration transports you from your current state of mind, to a place of wonder. Instead of thinking of your long day at work, your pile of unpaid bills or your sore toe - you think of a story that twists and turns. It's always a pleasure to visit the cast and characters by Rachelle and John, in their `Dime Store Novel' series. This one was a sweet read. I enjoy a good series of books...so I can get to know the characters and the surroundings and watch how the story unfolds with each new release. Thanks for the evening of fun! francy Saunders @mysterycozy
