It's not often that we spotlight an author who in one word is "versatile". Rhode Island native Raina Smith has a love for The Ocean State's storied history as she spotlights her roots in all her literary efforts. Her latest novel entitled "The Earth Consented" delves into the genre of science-fiction, extra-terrestrial and paranormal themes.

She also penned "The Vampire" a supernatural thriller (a sequel is already in the works) and "The 13th Apostle Trilogy" a compilation of religious thrillers. Her inspiration stems from personal experiences and curiosities of a universal energy force with a connection to life as her storylines have been described as "dramatic and intense". There is no doubt her readers find human emotion from the characters that are spotlighted in her literary works.
