Hello and welcome!

Hi, I’m Rae.

Author, mom and a huge fan of happy endings.

Storytelling has been my passion since the age of 12 years old. It took me several years of formal schooling, a teaching degree and several years of running my own business before I mustered the courage to share my stories with the world.

And what a journey it’s been since! I now write full time from my home office on our farm in the mountains where my daily view inspires and calms me. My mornings are spent writing and my afternoons are spent with my children. (It sounds so simple and organized here but in truth, life can be quite chaos at times!)

I love adventure and travelling and fortunately, my husband and children share my love of both. Whether it’s camping, winging an African road trip, or a luxurious holiday abroad – as long as it’s clean and without spiders – I’m always keen and ready. And of course, my Kindle and laptop accompany me wherever I go.

I also enjoy the outdoors too. We’re blessed to be surrounded by forests and dams and have the ocean nearby so we spend a lot of time hiking, boating, kayaking, water skiing and endless exploring.

I’m a huge believer in romance and soul mates – and not just because I’m a romance author. One of the best decisions I ever made was to marry my high school sweetheart. Two incredible children, an adorable Golden Retriever, a cheeky Jack Russel and 23 years later, we’re still enjoying one epic adventure!

Writing stories is a passion and a dream come true for me and I’m so blessed that it’s formed part of the adventure too. The day I received The Call from my editor at HarperCollins offering a book deal for The Keepers is one of my favorite memories! I have many more stories in mind and look forward to sharing them with you.

I love to hear from my readers so please get in touch via my contact page.

Thanks for stopping by!

“HarperImpulse is for authors who dare to be different and when I read Rae River’s debut I immediately signed up the entire Keepers series. Rae is a storyteller who doesn’t pull any punches – her Keepers are pure feel-good entertainment. You race through Rae’s stories, both wanting to know what happens next but not wanting the action to end. The Keepers is a series for readers who love break-neck pace with full throttle passion – combined with the hottest hunters and kickass witches.”
