Rachael Arsenault was born and raised on teeny tiny Prince Edward Island in Canada. She graduated from St. Thomas University in 2015, where she studied Sociology and Native Studies. In the 2011 Island Literary Awards, Rachael won first place for poetry and third place for short story, and in 2017 she won first place in the Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick’s Fog Lit Books for Young People Prize. She is a hippie at heart, an amateur photographer, and a pun master (much to the dismay of her friends).
Shakira had never felt at home growing up in Surrey, but as soon as she entered the quaint Welsh village she knew she belonged. Maybe it was because of the welcoming villagers. Or perhaps it was the presence of the others whom she sensed nearby; the ones she saw in her dreams, with their strange glowing eyes.
Fate is not always kind. It gives with one hand and takes with the other. There is a reason she didn’t grow up with her own kind.
A rich tale of witchcraft, fae, sorcery, elinefae and dragons; this is a story for all who dare to believe.

My books fall mostly under the supernatural genre, most recently my novella “Bittersweet Symphony”, about the employees of an advertising agency being haunted by odd occurrences in an ultramodern office building.
Drip: A Gothic Bromance
“A hand wearing a fancy watch parted the office blinds, and J.D. felt nauseous with despair: suddenly he knew—even though he could not explain how—that all of his mojo had been permanently taken away.”
J.D. and George: thick as thieves since the fourth grade. J.D., the troublemaker, the stud: the alpha. George, the sidekick, the misfit: the loser. Upon graduating college, J.D. has convinced the only job creator in rusty Middlestop to hire them. BrewCorp, the hot new coffee and retail chain, is offering a vice presidency to the employee with the boldest plan for growth, and J.D. is determined to be the guy. When not sleeping with co-workers, he hatches his pitch for a one-of-a kind data pipeline. He is unbeatable–until George grabs the promotion. Now J.D. wants answers. His quest to find them—and to deal with the monstrous truth—is the subject of indie filmmaker Andrew Montlack’s wry debut novel, which features the same biting satire that made his mockumentary, The Devil’s Filmmaker, a cult classic.
