Who are you and where did you come from?
Skyler Rankin grew up in the foothills of Appalachia, surrounded by mystery and folklore and secretive, mossy places where stories are born.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
I want to be writing and spinning stories to entertain and provide an escape for readers of all ages.

What is the biggest mistake you've made in your life?
My biggest mistake was thinking that if I just worked a little harder and made a little more money, I would have time to do what I love--writing. In reality, I should have placed writing first and let everything else fall into place around it.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Not much. I'm more of a Jamoca Almond Fudge sundae kind of girl.

Best Elevator Pitch For Latest Book. 300 words or less
My latest book is the sequel to my first book, Viral Dawn, written under my original pen name, Ann Logsdon. The sequel, Viral Storm, is the continuing traveler's tale of Casey Williams and her friends fighting for survival amid a harrowing viral outbreak giving rise to a zombie apocalypse. Viral Storm brings Casey straight into the viper's den as she infiltrates the army depot to find the rumored vaccine. Racing against time, Casey fights to control the virus that is incubating within her very veins.
