About Rachelle Smith
Rachelle never got her fill of high school, so she goes back daily to teach creative writing, English & composition, and journalism. After class, she’s usually found writing, photographing, or pursuing adventures.
She enjoys writing Young Adult fiction with strong, diverse characters. This means she must keep her vocabulary lit and her tech-know on point – but she would never say that out loud. She wants her YA work to inspire, to comfort, and to relate to people on all walks of life.
Her children’s books likewise feature diverse characters and are focused on inclusion, self affirmation, empathy, and humanity.
Rachelle studied comic book art, journalism, criminal justice and creative writing in school.
