About Me

My name is Rachael and I'm currently in college majoring in Psychology. I love contemplating how people think, doing research, and helping people. 

When I'm not writing or studying, I enjoy riding horses, photography, and watching TV. My favorite currently running shows are Doctor Who, Sherlock, Glee, Covert Affairs, Once Upon a Time, Castle, NCIS, White Collar, and Burn Notice. I also enjoy watching old episodes of Veronica Mars and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Riding-wise, I enjoy both western and english. I've done everything from trail to western pleasure to low-level hunters. I haven't ridden in over a year, but I hope to start again soon.

I mostly read young adult of all genres, especially dystopian, contemporary, and fantasy. Some of my favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins, Tamora Pierce, David Levithan, John Green, Rick Riordan, Carolyn Mackler, Sarah Dessen, Laurie Halse Anderson, Sarah Rees Brennan, Cassandra Clare, Veronica Roth, and Markus Zusak.

I also love the Vampire Academy series, Sold by Patricia McCormick, The Duff by Kody Keplinger, Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers, The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson, Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott, Lisa McMann's Dream Catcher trilogy, and The Foretelling by Alice Hoffman. Though I don't usually like classics, I do love The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, 1984 by George Orwell, and Animal Farm by George Orwell.
