Rachel was born in Buffalo, NY, but raised in Burlington, NC.  Thanks to her northern parents and being raised in the south, she likes to say she got the best of both worlds: (soda) pop and terrible sports teams (go Bills!), grits and southern hospitality.  She's been an avid reader since childhood, growing up with Sam-I-Am, Matilda, and Sarah Crewe then falling in love with Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, Henry and Clare DeTamble, and Harry Potter.  For her, little things in life are the ones to be the most passionate about.  Sunkist.  Getting pedicures.  Her dvd collection.  A really great pen.  

Her first book, Twenty-Five, is available for Kindle on Amazon and Smashwords. You can read the first 3 chapters of her second book, Honor's Lark, right here on Wattpad, and the Kindle and Paperback versions are both available on Amazon.

Rachel now lives in Raleigh, NC, but someday hopes to make it to London. She's pretty sure (if reincarnation exists) she was British in another life.
