My name is Rachel, and I love books! I love reading them, talking about them, and writing them!
I rarely go anywhere without a book in my hand (or in my bag). I’ll read just about anything, but my favorite genres are chick-lit and young adult. Sophie Kinsella, Gemma Townley, Liz Young, Marion Keyes, Meg Cabot, Jane Green, Harriet Evans, Carole Matthews, Sarah Dessen, and J.K. Rowling are some of my favorite authors.
Recently I decided to take the plunge and direct my love of books into writing my own novels. I’m so happy I did! I find writing to be one of the most satisfying experiences I have ever had! I hope I can share my love of stories and story telling with lots of readers.
When I’m not writing (or reading) I am most likely spending time with family (I have five siblings and seven nieces and nephews) or my dog, Lucy. I have an unhealthy addiction to reality television (Bravo, TLC, and HGTV are my downfalls) and I enjoy watching hockey–go Red Wings! In my free time, I enjoy decorating cakes and baking.
I live in Michigan. I enjoy spending time outside, especially in the forests and by the lakes in the northern part of the state. Camping, hiking, and boating are some of my favorite activities. And, of course, there’s nowhere better to read a good book than out in nature.http://rachelschurig.com/
