Jacqui M. Rankin is the author of Darkness Forbidden, her first novel published by Scorpius Books in December 2012.
Her second novel, Retribution Darkened, and the third novel, Dark Child, completed the trilogy.
Her passion for writing began as a child, when she would create stories based around her pets. Her love of the supernatural and paranormal evolved, and she wrote her first full length novel at the age of 15. Now she works as a freelance copy-editor and publisher.
Residing in rural Essex, England, she lives with her husband, daughter and Pumpkin, the cat.

A good day to die?…

Ok, so I’m one of those odd people who sometimes likes to see what happened on any certain date in history (I think it’s called procrastinating!), and I was a little disturbed to find that July 16th certainly hasn’t been a good day for writers in the grand scheme of things.


Since 1594 (not sure if this is when records began or just a random date the list plucked from thin air), over 20 writers, poe

Kyra Halland Hi, nice to meet you!


message 1: by J.M.

J.M. Rankin I was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of horror writer James Herbert. I first read one of his books several years ago and have been hooked ever since. He was definately an inspiration to me and my own writing.
My heart and sympathies go out to his family and friends at such a difficult time.
Rest in peace
