Hi I'm Rachel! I am a mama to three sweet babes, a nurse practitioner by trade, and an author/illustrator by heart. While I have always had the goal of becoming an author/illustrator, working during the pandemic in the COVID ICU reignited my motivation to put something happy and beautiful into the world.
My current project, "Bedtime Adventures with Grover" features the lovable little pup, Grover, who is fighting sleep to pursue his magical adventures. Grover is inspired by my sweet canine companion who passed away in 2022 and also by the incredible imaginations of my own kiddos. A funny, whimsical, and fantastical story that both readers and listeners will enjoy!
I am seeking representation as an author/illustrator and am excited to present this project at the SCBWI Conference!
