Hello! I'm Rachel.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English and History from Texas Wesleyan University and a Master of Library Science from Texas Woman’s University. I've worked for several years in publishing, then transferred my energy to education, where I spent almost two decades as a high school English teacher, School Librarian, and now Academic Librarian. I have also put my many years of knowledge from the publishing industry and librarianship to use as a writing coach, working with writers towards their goal of book completion and publication. I have 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.

While my blog hasn’t been updated much lately, here is the link if you’re really curious about what I was thinking before 2021! Also, if you are looking for an abundance of writing advice, check out my YouTube channel.
