Rachel Rener is the author of THE LIGHTNING CONJURER Series, a critically-acclaimed contemporary fantasy with elements of magical realism and romance. Her most recent release, THE GIRL WHO TALKS TO ASHES, remains at the top of Amazon’s bestsellers list.
She graduated from the University of Colorado after focusing on Psychology and Neuroscience. Since then, she has lived on three continents and has traveled to more than 40 countries.
When she’s not engrossed in writing, Rachel enjoys painting, reading, rock shows (musical and mineralogical), Vulcanology (both the lava kind as well as the pointy-eared kind), and playing Diablo 3. She lives in Colorado along with her husband, a stellar mineral collection, and a feisty umbrella cockatoo (“Jungle Chicken”) that hangs out on her shoulder as she writes.
The Girl Who Talks To Ashes
Things change around Lilah. Like actually change. An apple disintegrates. People age. Dogs transform into puppies. Or bones. These changes seem to be tied to her epileptic seizures which is why she has to take that daily little blue pill – a pill that works so well, Lilah seems like any other normal teenager. Until the day she chooses not to take the pill.
Fiercely determined to get answers about her strange abilities, she decides to track down the young girl who gave her up sixteen years ago; the young girl who never made it home that night… The young girl who is now presumed to be dead. Soon, Lilah’s quest to find her birth mother becomes a quest to solve a sixteen-year-old missing persons case. She has everything she needs to find her – she just needs to learn how to control her peculiar powers before she kills someone. Again.
