“I just want to enjoy making up stories.”

Raina Rose McClellan

A member of the Writers’ League since 2024, Raina lives in the Austin, TX area.

Scribe: Welcome, writer! Tell us — what do you write?

Raina Rose McClellan: I started as a songwriter. I made a living as a touring songwriter for 12 years and then I had kids and started a business as an herbalist making skincare products. I still write songs, but during lockdown I was inspired to write a novel. It’s in the vein of fantasy fiction, which I love.

Scribe: If you could choose one author to blurb your book, who would it be, and what would you want it to say?

RRM: Madeline L’Engle. It would be whimsical, scientific and to the point.

Scribe: You have one book you’re allowed to push onto all of your friends, and they’re forced to read it to remain your friend — which one would you choose?

RRM: Edward Abbey’s The Monkeywrench Gang.

Scribe: Tell us your WLT story.

RRM: I read a a passage from my book at One Page Salon, but then a music friend told me to join as well.

Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?

RRM: I see it taking my time and focus. I am not attached to where it takes me otherwise. I just want to enjoy making up stories.

Scribe: Here at the WLT, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one book that has come out within the past few years that you couldn’t put down? (Bonus points if the book is Texas related!)

RRM: I haven’t had time to read anything yet this year, oh goodness that’s embarrassing.

Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!

RRM: Check out my skincare company, Folk Potions: www.folkpotions.com

Scribe: Let us know any social media handles you have!

RRM: @folkpotions and @rainarosie on Instagram
