About the Author:

Rayne was born in Helsinki, Finland, and grew up in a multilingual home. After graduating from college, she studied psychology at the University of Helsinki. In 1967, she moved to Geneva, Switzerland with her then husband and their two small children.

As clinical psychology and experienced public speaker she worked close to thirty years in a multinational company as addictions counselor with responsibility for their subsidiaries in most European countries. In this job, she facilitated workshops, developed educational programs, wrote two non-fiction books, co-authored a film script and lectured on chemical dependence.

From early childhood, Rayne read; the American classics, the French, the Russian, modern American literature, poetry. Since early retirement she has been writing and taken different courses and workshops in creative writing. Rayne is active in critic groups, Writers' Village University and a member of Florida Writers' Association.

Rayne didn't read the one book that made her want to become a writer. With her education and experience as a psychologist she writes about real people for real people about those painful life situations that are talked about in hushed tones. She shows her readers that no matter how bad a situation may seem, there is a way out; the prerequisite is the desire to change. If asked why she writes, she says it's because she cannot not write; writing is a passion. Since her second husband passed away after twenty-five wonderful years she writes full-time and lives both in Geneva, Switzerland and Florida.

Her second novel is in its final stages of editing, and she is hard at work on her third book.
