Editorial Reviews

Review

"Whether she's carving up tales of supernatural hit squads, steam-punk demon folk, or warped-reality TV shows, Iraq War veteran (and defender of the nightmare hordes) Rachel A. Brune writes with butterfly-knife dexterity: Always a flashy cut, a dreadful twist, a sideways chance at hope. And then, things usually get dark. If you love Ray Bradbury and Shirley Jackson short horror stories, be sure to read this book!" --Randy Brown, co-editor of Why We Write: Craft Essays on Writing War

"A perfect mix of horror concepts and storytelling techniques executed with exquisite precision." --Michael G. Williams, author of
A Fall in Autumn

"Looking for dark fantasy and horror that's beautifully written and full of memorable characters? Check out Rachel Brune's single author collection, Side Roads, for stories that range across genres and time periods, from horror to post-apocalyptic and beyond. Creepy and absorbing, these stories will stick with you for awhile and make you hungry for more." --Catherine Lundoff, Publisher, Queen of Swords Press

About the Author

As a military journalist, Rachel A. Brune wrote and photographed the Army and its soldiers for five years. When she moved on, she didn't quit writing stories with soldiers in them, just added werewolves, sorcerers, a couple evil mad scientists, and a Fae or two. Now a full-time author and writing coach living in North Carolina, Rachel enjoys poking around old military posts and listening for the ghosts of old soldiers--or writing them into her latest short story. She lives with her spouse, two daughters, one reticent cat, and two flatulent rescue dogs.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Rachel A. Brune graduated from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts in May 2000, and was immediately plunged into the low-stakes world of entry-level executive assistant-ship. Her unexpected journey out of that world and into the military is chronicled in her self-published book Echoes and Premonitions.

Rachel served five years as a combat journalist, including two tours in Iraq, and a brief stint as a columnist for her hometown newspaper. After her second tour, she attended graduate school at the University at Albany in NY, where she earned her MA in Political Communication, and her commission as a second lieutenant in the military police corps. She returned to the Army Reserve in November 2014.

Rachel continues to write and publish fiction, both short stories, novellas, and full-length novels. She is also the founder and editor of Crone Girls Press, an indie horror micro-press.

In addition to writing fiction, she blogs her adventures, writing and otherwise, at The Infamous Scribbler. You can also follow her on Twitter, where she goes by the handle @rachelabrune.
