I am sure that horror writers are not the only ones who wake from nightmares, hearts pounding, still terrified, and their first thought is

  • Bio

    Rachel is a writer based in the San Francisco Bay area. A native of humidity and mosquito-thickened environments, she voyaged west with her tabby companions. She saw her first desert in California and lost her heart completely. (She kept moving west because other interested parties said “Are you mad? I can’t find work here.”)


    When not writing, she spends way too much time riding her bicycle.
