It has always been her dream to publish her writing. The book, along with the book signing party is an opportunity to bring her dream back home.

Raver grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota. When she was a girl, she and her older brother used to create stories, competing to see who could write the most. Eventually that game evolved into fantasy writing, and "Brother, Betrayed" was the result.

A tale woven with deception, war, sacrifice, and magic, "Brother, Betrayed" takes readers to a troubled kingdom surrounded by barbarians, magical races and forbidden boundaries.
