Rachael was born in California, raised in Wyoming, and is thankful to be in Colorado. Outside of writing speculative fiction for teens, she enjoys hiking, gardening, yoga, and dark chocolate. Her best friend in elementary school was a ghost named Tracy who had died of a broken heart. She demanded her middle school friends call her “Casper” for one day too many. And high school was spent writing sexy Lord of the Rings fan-fiction. Rachael began to write horror after bingeing Supernatural and she hasn’t looked back since.
She is afraid of many things.
