I am a National Board Certified Library Media Specialist, member SCWBI, who has had the pleasure of teaching, storytelling, orchestrating programs, and sharing hand selected children’s literature with elementary students for over twelve years. In my years experience reading, sharing, and purchasing children’s books for elementary school media centers, I have sought out literature for reluctant readers in particular, with exciting, fast paced plots, fantastic characters, and settings to thrill. Watching imagination take flight because of the written word is an amazing thing. Being immersed in children's literature for over a decade has helped me hone my skills in writing middle grade fantasy. I believe my experience as a librarian has made me a writer for the people, my people, young people.
My latest novel is BENJAMIN, and you can watch a book trailer for it at http://racheldimaria.com/My_Book__Benjamin.html
