Rachel Griffin writes young adult contemporary fantasy inspired by the magic of the world around her. She graduated from Seattle University with a bachelor of science in diagnostic ultrasound, and had the pleasure of teaching in the same program as an adjunct faculty lab instructor. She worked as a sonographer for five years before making the switch to a small startup, where she ran their PR and social media efforts. She now writes full time from her home in the Seattle area, where towering evergreens and moody skies provide the perfect atmosphere for getting words down.
Rachel is a mentor in Pitch Wars and is a co-creator of the revision-focused blog, Be Your Own Mentor. When she isn’t writing, she can be found hiking with her husband, walking with her dog, or reading by the fire. She loves red lipstick, tea, and thunderstorms. She thinks solar eclipses are absolute magic and that weather is incredibly cool (her dog, Doppler, agrees). She is obsessed with the Pacific Northwest and hopes more vampires settle down here.
