Reven Archer Black has loved storytelling since she was a kid. It just sort of “happened”, starting one fateful night she will always remember. Since then, she has discovered it is in her blood and soul. Life isn’t quite the same when she denies the muses and characters demanding their stories be told!
Growing up, Reven spent a lot of time reading book after book, from children’s lit to YA horror to adult fantasy novels. By the time she was 12, she decided that novels were terribly fun to write. In high school, Reven discovered the fascinating world of psychology and behaviour. As a classic introvert, she tends to watch and listen to people and situations a lot more than she talks. Combined, the experiences and knowledge tend to be fused into a variety of characters and situations. Add an eclectic music collection and some weirdness and the stories can be rather twisted.
Reven lives in Canada but her imagination lives somewhere in the Unknown. She loves to explore the darker side of human nature and the challenges that must be overcome to make changes in one’s life. Her literary home is in the speculative fiction world with a specialization in fantasy. She absolutely adores the “The Terry’s”: Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, and Terry Pratchett.
Reven’s debut was What Must Be Done in the Dark Light Four anthology by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing. Since then, she has had short stories and poems published, including For What Is Taken (in the Mystical Bites anthology) and Sundae (in the Love Sucks anthology). Her first novel, Ascension, is on the look-out for a permanent home, kicking off her epic fantasy series, BLOOD & HERITAGE.
She welcomes everyone to drop by her social media pages and say hello, especially if they come with humour and chocolate!
