Declaration by Rayna Noire‏


Rayna Noire is an author and a historian. The desire to uncover the truth behind the original fear of witches led her to the surprising discovery that people believed in magick in some form up to 150 years ago. A world that believed the impossible could happen and often did must have been amazing. With this in mind, Ms. Noire taps into this dimension, shapes it into stories about Pagan families who really aren't that different from most people. They do go on the occasional time travel adventures and magick happens.

Ethan finds himself trapped between the world he knows and the world that could be. A sadistic bully, an unsympathetic principal, and an unreachable love interest make high school difficult for Ethan. He feels like he’s living a lie, trying to blend in at school in an effort to keep his head attached to his body.

The support his Wiccan family provides is negated by fear of not being the son his father wants. An impromptu trip into the future saves him from an enraged bully while instilling doubts about where he really belongs. Somehow, he has to find a way to survive in his own world tossing aside his mask and doubts.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
This is book three is the Pagan Eyes series. Ethan is the younger, outspoken brother in the earlier two books. He’s sometimes annoying as little brothers can be.

I don’t shape characters and make them do what I want. They appear fully formed with a mind of their own. I never even planned to write Ethan’s story since he was a gay male, but he had other ideas.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
Six months, it was harder than the first two. Not because Ethan is male, but the world building that had to be done. I had to create a new world with two distinctly different cultures.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
The what if’s—what would happen if I did this. I work in high school, so I often ask students for reactions to various scenarios.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
The very end of editing because you’ve read the story dozens of times, but you need to reread everything one last time. That’s when I have to stop myself from trying to rewrite the entire book.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Jayne Ann Krentz because she’s talented, kind, and organized. Everything I want to be. She’s fun person too.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
I do have some lavender mustard that is probably six months old. Not much use for lavender mustard.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I am finishing out the Pagan Eyes series with Affirmation (fourth book.) There will be a bonus book about the grandparents.

Then it is onto the Druid series called Druidic Dreams. (Four books.) This YA series deals with teen Druids and life issues similar to Pagan Eyes.

After that, it is Shaman Sisters. This one is a little different because instead of personal issues, the sisters are working to fulfill the family shamanic legacy and uncover the mystery behind their parents’ death. (Three books.) Finally, The Alashian Chronicles, which is a three book series about an undiscovered culture on present day Earth. (Three books.) That should keep me busy for a couple of years.
