About this author

Killian McRae would tell you that she is a rather boring lass, an authoress whose characters’ lives are so much more exciting than her own. She would be right. Sadly, this sarcastic lexophile leads a rather mundane existence in the San Francisco Bay Area. She once dreamed of being the female Indiana Jones, and to that end she earned a degree in Middle Eastern History from the University of Michigan. However, when she learned that real archaeologist spend more time lovingly removing dust with toothbrushes from shards of pottery than outrunning intriguing villains with exotic accents, she decided to become a writer instead. She writes across many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, romance, and historical fiction.

There were a few real gems in this collection, but I was extremely soured on the collection as a whole by the last few chapters. I understand that the essays/stories are satirical, but it's satire based on the media-popular assumption that anyone hol...more

Wow, this one is by far the best of the series. But... But... But.

Having said that, it took a HUMONGOUS nosedive in the last 20-30 pages. It's not that endpoint wasn't satisfying or that the characters or writing suffered. It was simply that, after...more

“Booze makes brothers like no mothers ever do.”
Killian McRae, A Love by Any Measure

“Love doesn't keep to a schedule, and it doesn't respect your time. Sometimes it shows up a year too early, when you have other obligations. Sometimes it comes bumbling through the door to announce to you it had a sweet deal hooked up for you, but it got lost on the way over and now it's gone. And once in a while, and hopefully just once because that's all you really need it to, it shows up right on time, with a dozen roses, and a box of chocolates, just as you're pulling dinner from the oven.”
Killian McRae, Once You Go Demon

“Once you go demon, it's them that you're needin'.”
Killian McRae, Pure & Sinful
