Rae Knightly was raised in various locations on Earth, during which time she picked up four languages and came to appreciate this blue pebble floating in the confines of space.

Her current human mission is to keep the stars shining in her two children's eyes, while hopefully igniting new ones within others across the globe.

Rae spends her time spirit travelling to distant galaxies or exploring the breathtaking landscapes of British Columbia, Canada, before returning with more adventures for her ALIEN SKILL SERIES.

That's a funny story, actually!

I used to have a 90-minute commute to work every morning and every evening. I'd be stuck in traffic for hours. And I'd get bored.

One day I was trailing an old van. I had nothing to look at except for its dirty doors. The company name had peeled off and the only remaining letters were: M-E-S-M-O. For about twenty minutes, I found myself trying to figure out what word it had been and which letters were missing.

The letters stuck. And since I couldn't figure out what the original name or word had been, I decided right then-and-there, "I'm going to create a story around Mesmo."

And so The Alien Skill Series was born.(less)

I have several methods to deal with writer's block.

First, I listen to inspirational music. I have a playlist on Youtube that I always listen to when I'm writing. It's as if, as soon as the first tune begins, my brain switched to writing mode.

Second, I write in the car - yes, the car! There's no internet and no distractions. Highly recommended!

Third, the brain is a muscle, and, like any other muscle, you have to warm it up until it's well oiled and running smoothly. So I'll throw out some random phrases and paragraphs that may or may not make sense, but that gets me started. I can always rework later. I've also had to overcome an innate fear that my writing won't be good enough. Then I tell myself: just try.

Do I suffer from writer's block? Yes, I do! But that's usually a sign that I need to take a break from writing, go for walks, watch a movie, read a book or photograph beautiful landscapes.(less)
