Long bio

Rachel Lynn Solomon is a Seattle native who loves rainy days, tap dancing, and red lipstick. In high school, she played keyboard in an all-girl band and filled journals with cringe-worthy lyrics. Now she pours her feelings into contemporary young adult novels.

After graduating from the University of Washington with a B.A. in journalism, she worked for Northwest media outlets such as The Seattle Times, KUOW Public Radio, and KIRO-FM Radio. She also spent several years as a college essay coach and SAT/ACT tutor, and maintains a fondness for both multiple-choice questions and the quadratic formula. Until 2018, she worked full-time as a recruiting manager for a national tutoring company. Currently, she divides her time between writing and freelance editing.

A five-year Pitch Wars mentor, Rachel serves on the Pitch Wars committee as the agent liaison. She especially loves cultivating one-on-one relationships with emerging writers.

She has published two young adult novels with Simon & Schuster’s Simon Pulse imprint: You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone and Our Year of Maybe, both of which were named to the Kids’ Indie Next List. Two more books are scheduled for 2020 and 2021. Her books center on messy relationships and complicated girls who are trying their best.

Rachel lives in Seattle with her husband and tiny dog.
