Message From Rachel

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. I’m Rachel, a travel-loving writer from San Diego. I’m currently immersed in writing my ‘Winds of Change’ trilogy. When I’m not writing, I love exploring other countries and have lived in Australia and the UK. I’m in the midst of raising two amazing teenage daughters (heaven help me) with my charming British hubby (I highly recommend picking one up). I enjoy reading, hiking, and traveling. I’ve been told my passion for travel and my family shines through in my writing. I can often be found chasing sunsets on the beach or rollerblading on the boardwalk with my minis. Follow me on this exciting journey as I publish my first Novel.

Let’s be friends!
