Rachel and I met on Twitter through a mutual writer friend and am really glad we did. Her tweets (Twitter entries for you non-Twitter folks) are informative and often so funny I have to be careful not to drink my coffee when I'm reading them. Like me, Rachel didn't start out writing in the genre she's come to love. She sort of stumbled upon romance one day and discovered it was the one. It can happen to any of us, preconceived notions about what a genre is all about can keep us from our calling. Rachel now writes historical romance and is working hard toward publication.
If you're looking to connect with other writers who are supportive, helpful, and a blast to get to know, be sure to look her up.
