Truly a “Jacqueline of all Trades,” Rachel Ellyn proves to be very difficult to define in a neat sentence, however her writing very easily converts readers to “fan” status. With degrees in both Finance and Economics, Rachel found wonderful success in the business world. But her keen curiosity and interest in others, coupled with the need for self-awareness, took her down the proverbial “road less traveled,” and Rachel shunned the “power suit and high heels” for comfortable jeans. (Truth be told, the high heels have stuck around, and are frankly a bit of a weakness.) Now, combining her passion for writing and story-telling with the skills, knowledge, and drive that led to her business success, Rachel shares her offbeat take on the world through prose.

Born in Kingston, NY, raised in McLean, VA, and having lived around the D.C. Metro Area, London, England, St. Louis, MO, Madison, WI, and Sacramento, CA, Rachel soon realized that the world was as small as it was big. Rachel listens intently to people she meets on the street during the course of everyday life, loved ones who surround her, and to the beat of her own heart to generate ideas for her work. The results are a publicist's nightmare; writing in multiple genres including children’s fiction, flash fiction, romance, and suspense/thriller. Life, love, divorce, traveling pigs, and children are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg with regards to the subject matter Rachel tackles with gusto.

As diverse and complex as her body of work, Rachel is congenial, caring, and loved by many, including her new husband Scott Mahurin. She is also exceedingly proud of her three bright, talented children; Irina, Gus, and Sam, and her less talented, but highly amusing pets; dog Pixie, Cooper, step-dog Jack, and cat Atari.

She currently resides in Lee’s Summit, MO.
