Guest of the Month – Rachel Van Dyken

I’m excited to welcome a fellow 1,001 Dark Nights sister to the blog! With two new releases this month, she took time out of her busy schedule to chat with me.

Please welcome Rachel Van Dyken…

Name a movie you’ve seen at least five times and why it’s a favorite.  

The Princess Bride, its just one of the best of its kind! And of course any Disney movie, I’m obsessed with all things Disney.

Caffeine of choice: tea, coffee, or soda? 


What does your work space look like?

Organized chaos, sticky notes everywhere, two screens, books, a trail of snacks and coke zero.

Describe your ideal romantic evening. 

This is going to sound so lame, but my romantic evening is staying home with the family, with a bottle of wine, a good book, and a movie.

Where is your bucket-list vacation? 

I’ve always wanted to go to Rome and Greece.

Plotter or panster and why?

Pantser, I feel like the characters should get to decide what happens not me and I like to let the story move organically.

What music are you listening to? Do you play it while you write?

I have to have an entire Spotify playlist dedicated to every book. Right now I’m listening to a lot of Halsey and 30 Seconds to Mars

Last but not least, what’s YOUR Shayla Black kiss?
