Currently, Rachel lives with her husband, two young children and parakeet in Blue Springs, Missouri where she is a freelance writer. She still likes to take walks, but now they are with children in tow. When she has a chance to unwind, she enjoys curling up with a good book and a cup of Chai. Traveling, scrapbooking, running and being caught up in March Madness round out her coveted spare time activities.
