Hi, my name is Rachel!
I live deep in the heart of Texas – in the wonderful capital, Austin. I’m thirteen-years old, and I love to write! When I was nine-years old, I gave my first speech, and later, at eleven, I gave my first TEDx talk. It has always been my dream to become an author, especially in my favorite genre, fantasy.
I am very passionate and creative when it comes to writing. I love capturing my imagination through the words I write on a page. I love traveling with my friends and family and experiencing new cultures and lifestyles around the world. Another important aspect of my life is tennis – I love being outside, especially on sunny days, when my friends and I can cool off with a refreshing smoothie. I also love movies, surfing, skiing, cycling, and swimming, and I like to express my personality and adventurous side with these fun hobbies as well. Spending time with my family, friends, and of course my two loveable dogs Mordy and Esther, are very important to me.

I wanted to do something to help other children by doing what I love - writing. I know that I’m very fortunate to have access to any book that I’m interested in reading, and not all children do. I wanted to find a way to extend that opportunity to those less fortunate that don’t have access to many books.
I thought that writing a children’s fantasy book for young readers would be the perfect thing to do. I hope that after many children read my book they feel like they are not alone. They will always be able to read my story and take a magical journey with their special friends during hard times in their lives. I am so proud that this beautiful story - my very first book, "Guardians of the Forest" - is complete and ready to get out there in the world, changing many young kids' lives for the better.
My books can be purchased for personal use, to give as gifts, or as a donation. If you choose for me to donate them, I will personally be responsible for distributing them to elementary schools, public libraries, hospitals, and children centers. Thank you for purchasing my book, and I truly hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it.
