Rachel Lynn Solomon writes, tap dances, and collects red lipstick in Seattle, Washington. She is the author of the YA novels You'll Miss Me When I'm GoneOur Year of Maybe, and the forthcoming Today Tonight Tomorrow, all from Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse. 

In high school, Rachel sang and played keyboard in an all-girl band, and she was once part of a group of people who broke a Guinness World Record for the most natural redheads in one place.

She has written for newspapers, produced a radio show that aired in the middle of the night, and worked for NPR. Currently she works as a freelance editor. Rachel has been a Pitch Wars mentor since 2014 and currently serves on the Pitch Wars leadership committee.

These days, she writes young adult novels about ambitious, complicated, sometimes unlikable girls who are trying their best.
