Rae Knightly is a sci-fi/fantasy author for teens and the young-at-heart.

Rae 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)

Hi Dorothea,
Thank you for your questions. :)
I speak English, French, Spanish and Flemish. My mother tongue is French but I went to an English-speaking school and have a BA in Translation.
For some reason, I've never been able to write in any other languages besides English. I think it's because I grew up reading English books and enjoyed them so much I felt compelled to replicate that feeling. That said, maybe I'll translate my own books one day... :)

NEWS22 't is the season of GIFTS (from me to you)

Balm for your soul after a tough year.


Dear friends,

It's been a tough year.

Nobody could have prepared us for it.

But there's a light at the end of the tunnel. 2021 will bring us good things, such as a vaccine that will allow us to safely visit our loved ones. Soon we'll put covid-19 behind us and we'll go on with our normal lives.

Let me tell you, we will look back on these days slightly incredulous. Read more of this blog post »
