I’m thrilled and proud to be the latest Writer-in-Residence for The Fictional Café. Writing is how I process the world, it’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do. And I’ve done everything I can to make sure that my life is absolutely saturated in stories. My publications include “The Baptism of an Atheist” for The Bitchin’ Kitsch and winner of the Samuel LaRue Finley Humorous Writing contest; “Hey, You Know What We Should Do?” for The Tunnels; and “Little Black Dress” and “Collegiate Correspondents” for Fictional Café. “Collegiate Correspondents” once again won the Samuel LaRue Finley Humorous Writing contest.
Today I work in a public library and am pursuing a Masters in English Lit to become a professor and engage with young adults who were just like me in college. When I’m not writing and crusading for free and equitable education and literacy, I’m thinking about Dungeons and Dragons, hiking, rock climbing, or on a National Parks road trip.
Welcome, Rachel! I’m so excited you’ve joined our literary family and I can’t wait to get to know you through your work.

So proud of you. You reached for the stars and the dreams are coming true.
Great photo Rachel.
Two questions – Who is the person on that cool t-shirt you are wearing and… are you able to reveal the location of that photo?
I am so proud of you for following your dream and for all of your writing accomplishments. Congratulations on the decision to pursue your Masters degree. That’s exciting! Go, Rachel!
