About Rachel

Rachel Pilcher, writer, Book Coach-in-Training, and publisher at Sleeping Panther Press, holds Bachelor of Arts in English and History from Texas Wesleyan University and a Masters of Library Science from Texas Woman’s University. Rachel worked for several years in publishing, then transferred her energy to education, where she spent almost two decades as a high school English teacher, School Librarian, and now Academic Librarian. She is now putting her many years of knowledge from the publishing industry and librarianship to use in training to be a Book Coach, which she hopes to complete by the end of summer 2022 so that she can begin officially working with writers towards their goal of book completion and publication. Rachel has published essays, articles, short screenplays, poetry and fiction in various publications, as well as a short book for teachers, titled Classroom Management for the Real World.
