Rachel Auld started writing short stories on her brother's very ancient computer back in the early 90s and never looked back. After graduating from college and having two beautiful daughters, the universe finally answered Rachel's question of "What DO I want to be when I grow up?" and inspired her to take her writing more seriously. Though homeschooling two kids takes up much of her time, Rachel fits in writing sessions wherever she can--in the car outside of the dance studio, during summer day camps, and amidst the zillion questions that moms field every day with young kids. Her first novel, "The Edge of Autumn," was finished during NaNoWriMo 2016 and published in July of 2017.
I generally enjoy historical fiction and romance in my free time, but I am a sucker for Young Adult and certain classics. I'm a big Jane Austen fan and have really been enjoying working my way through the Anne of Green Gables series as a parent! I do enjoy suspense and mystery, but since I read a lot more in the evening these days, I have to limit things that freak me out right before bed. For non-fiction, I absolutely loved Stephen King's book, "On Writing." It made me realize that a lot of the things I thought were just crazy about myself as a writer are actually common!

I currently use the Kindle app on my Samsung tablet, though I did love my old Kindle Fire HDX until it died!
