Hi, I’m Rachel!

When I was little, I used to spend hours writing and illustrating my own stories. I would sneak to the printer for a few sheets of paper and bind my books with staples or a three-hole punch and some string.

As I got older, I kept writing stories. Sometimes true stories about the places I traveled and the things I learned. And sometimes made up stories from my own imagination.

Now, I am ready to share those stories with you! Click on the links below to learn more about my books and place an order.
