Hi everyone, I’m Rae!
How did I get to be an author, freelance editor, and total fangirl?
It all started with a challenge…

Raven Eckman is an author, freelance editor, and literary fangirl. She always knew books were her passion, well before her grandmother’s challenge to read a book a day when she was young.
She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration in Creative Writing from Arcadia University and is currently pursuing her MFA at Lindenwood University. Since 2016, and the launch of her editing business in 2018: A New Look On Books, she’s been working with a range of authors, both self-published and traditionally published, on short stories and novels from horror to contemporary in YA and Adult fiction. And reading, lots of reading.
Shadowspeak is Raven’s debut novel. Itchy Pants is her first picture book.
She is currently working on multiple projects including two more picture books and a prequel to her debut novel.
Raven lives in Pennsylvania with her GSD, Atlas, and two rescue cats Loki and Freya.
