Collins uses a mix of mystery, fantasy, horror and paranormal elements in her Rachel Blackstone Paranormal Mystery series. One never knows what Rachel will be faced with next.

IS THIS AUTHOR DANGEROUS? General reporting is a very educational job. Where many people specialize in a specific area, it's the job of a reporter to ask questions, learn quickly and write even faster about many subjects.
