Laken Cane Author Spotlight

About The Author

After trying to find my niche in the world of creativity, I finally came to the conclusion that I was meant to write.

Not, of course, that I didn't really know that all along, but it took me a while to get serious. As a child I would have been perfectly content locked in a library all my waking hours.

A total introvert, I'm somewhat shy and most alive, energetic, and happy when I'm alone--not that I dislike people! Writing about people makes me happy. Or better yet, writing about wolves and vampires.

I spend most of my time writing, reading, doing things with friends, and working on promoting my books. I also can out-shop anyone I know, and will go shopping at the slightest opportunity.

My books are full of angsty, tormented people, and none of them are remotely perfect. I love flawed, real characters who face normal problems along with extraordinary trials and troubles, such as how not to howl when the moon is full or how to save the world from vampires determined to take over. 

You know. Things like that. 

I am also published under a different pseudonym.

Rune Alexander wants to get through her days doing her job, which is protecting the humans against the myriad of supernatural creatures, known as Others, who exist uneasily in a human's world. 

But she is unstable and damaged. She realizes how broken she is even as she continues to submit to the unspeakable things her lover does to her, craving desperately the strange peace she finds in the aftermath.

When she discovers things are not as they seem and a faceless human is torturing the supernatural groups in her city, she and her crew must break the rules and begin to protect the Others from the humans. 

But as the darkness inside her becomes stronger and she ends up on the wrong side of a battle she must not lose, who will save Rune from herself?

Blood and Bite (Rune Alexander #2)

Shiv Crew is back in book two of the Rune Alexander series. 

Rune and the crew--some of them a little healthier, some of them a little more battered--take on new monsters and unbelievable surprises in Blood and Bite.

While Rune is keeping her promise to Ellis and trying to get her mind fixed, the berserker goes away to take care of some business--mysterious business he doesn't share with Shiv Crew.

What he brings back with him knocks the wind out of Rune and makes her question everything she thought she knew about Strad Matheson.

But the worst is yet to come.

With a mad vampire master she must destroy, a child she must save, and unimaginable screams from a past she has to ignore, Rune has her hands full. But there is always something new and terrible waiting in River County--waiting, it seems, just for her.

Because just when she thinks she can't possibly handle one more terrible thing, she discovers a shocking truth about herself, her blood, and her bite

Strange Trouble (Rune Alexander #3)

A baby necromancer calls her mother from the grave, starting a zombie infestation Rune and the crew are not prepared to handle.

But as always, they jump headlong into battle--a battle that will lead into some of the darkest moments of Rune's life. Moments that will shatter her tenuous grip on sanity and make her long for the man whose abuse allowed her to function.

And when she falls, the berserker is there to catch her. To bring her back. To give her what she needs.

The zombies are just the beginning. Worse even than the zombies is what comes after--a nightmare witch named Damascus, a horrific decision, and death.

Always, death.

As she is given another jagged piece to the puzzle of her past, Rune knows that despite its best attempts, life doesn't have the ability to destroy her--though she offers it all the help it might need.

With Strad Matheson and the crew behind her, Rune will stride through hell, horror, and the endless, black despair of her own mind to show the monsters why Shiv Crew is the scariest group of warriors they will ever face...
