Rachel has two daughters, Isla Pear (2) and Gwen Presley (4 months) and recently began writing again while on maternity leave for the summer. It has been a few years since she has taken the time to write. "Our Patio" was her first poem about her new life as a Mommy of two. She hopes to continue writing about the things that matter most to her. Her favorite author is Ernest Hemingway and Rachel loves to write using her antique typewriter.
