My name is Rain. I'm a writer and I hope to be an author soon, but my day job is teaching. I have been writing since I was twelve. Most of my books are fantasy/adventure with magic and other worlds, but several are mystery/horror with vampires or other monsters. I also have a five-book-long series. What stopped me from trying to get any of them published was both a fear of rejection and the stress over finding and hooking a literary agent. Now times have changed so much that I don't know the best way to go about getting published (Traditional versus epublishing and using an ebook publishing agency versus self publishing ebooks). All my friends are teachers and don't understand the drive to write. There are days where the only thing I want to do is write. I'm hoping to get to know others who have the same need to write as I do.
