Rosie Interviews Author Raven Moon
Recently I have had the pleasure of sharing the author spotlight with Raven Moon. She bravely hosted 31 Ghoulish Days a takeover event celebrating Halloween, her favorite holiday. We quickly became friends with so much in common besides writing. Raven is a down to earth person with a lot to offer in her stories, as well as her crafting. Her sparkling personality, along with her swag and generous spirit will bowl you over.
Raven was born and raised in Indiana. She lives on a 5-acre farm in the outskirts of Charlestown, Indiana with plenty of space for her family to grow with their many pets.
She is married to the love of her life, she met in 1987. They have 3 wonderful adult children, and 3 beautiful granddaughters. Her grandchildren and children are her life. She loves the country life, late night bon fires with her family and enjoying what Mother Earth has given her.
When Raven isn’t writing, she is taking care of her granddaughters, homestead and making Swag, or as she calls it, pretties. She loves taking photos of her family and Nature and loves to garden.
Raven started writing after she lost her father unexpectedly in 2014. She wrote and published her first Novel in 2015. She has overcome many obstacles in her writing, but she pushed forward with the love and support of her family and many friends.
Raven never in her wildest dreams thought of becoming an Author, but here she is, trying to live a dream that come from a tragedy.
Destiny of the Witch, Mountains of the Immortals Book One is a Paranormal Suspense Romance with many twists and turns. She is in the progress of writing the second in the series.
ROSIE’S REVIEW OF DESTINY OF THE WITCH
About a week ago I read Destiny of the Witch. There is a mixture of suspense and paranormal that takes you to the edge and just when you think you have it figured out another secret. Rainelle’s angst is palpable and Raven has kept me on the edge of my seat throughout…she spins a fabulous tale of dreams and adventure you don’t want to miss. A slow build up with a jolt of danger as Rainelle searches for her destiny. The best part is Raven Moon pulls you into the story and leaves you wanting more..
ROSIE’S INTERVIEW WITH RAVEN MOON
Q: Why did you choose the paranormal genre?
RM: It is something I believe in and love stories of fact and fiction in that field.
Q: What inspired this story?
RM: I lost my father and started to keep a journal of my feelings and somehow, in the midst of writing, Destiny of the Witch unfolded. A Dream from a Dream out of a Tragedy.
Q: I am sorry to hear about your Father, something else we have I common… How much research did you have to do for his story?

I particularly enjoyed the Native American lore you added, is it true about the caves.
RM: Some is true, but some is fiction.
