Rachel is a Seattle native who loves rainy days, her tiny dog, tap dancing, old movies, red lipstick, and books with flawed, complicated characters. In high school, she sang in a riot grrrl 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 in the education field.

Rachel's young adult fiction is represented by Laura Bradford of the Bradford Literary Agency.
