R. L. Naquin is an urban fantasy novelist and short story writer. Her first novel, Monster in My Closet, will be published by Carina Press in July 2012.
Rachel lives in a world slightly askew from the rest of us. She is an expert in monsters, urban legends, and mythological creatures. In her spare time, she ponders the care and feeding of cryptozoological creatures — and shares her tips on Twitter as @RLNaquin #monstertrivia.
Originally from Northern California, Rachel has a tendency to move every few years. She has lived in seven different states, and had a six-year stint in England. Currently, she’s hiding in the Heartland, planning her next grand adventure. She has one heroic husband, two genius kids, three annoyed cats, and an imaginary dog named Waffles. She doesn’t have time for a real dog.
