Angel never imagined she’d stumble into becoming an author. An avid fan of books her whole life combined with an active imagination were the right ingredients to embark on a single goal of completing one book. She knew she had stories in her head, but getting those out into words on paper was daunting to say the least.
Her earliest memories of trying to write a novel was a story inspired by the 1990’s movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme called Lion Heart. She still has the 14-page first chapter, printed on blue paper, in her file cabinet as a reminder of where the seed of writing first began.
Angel loves action, thrillers and suspense as well as classic love stories penned by the likes of Jane Austen and Danielle Steele. Her writing blends the two in what she’s dubbed “Crime Fiction for Women” — showcasing stories where female protagonists find their lives intersecting with criminals as they juggle trying to find love and save their own lives at the same time.
Angel resides in Tomball and is a brain-washed, card carrying Texan!
As a pre-teen, a young Rachel quickly tired of the Sweet Valley High Series and moved on to work by Sidney Sheldon, Jackie Collins and Dominick Dunne, which was just the spark necessary to fuel her love of writing. Her first stories were written on a Brother typewriter during long summer days in Texas, where she always had an extra typewriter ribbon and correction tape handy.
Rachel later studied journalism and graduated from the University of Houston where she published articles in the Daily Cougar. She is a freelance writer and blogger with a penchant for melodrama and a frequent traveler to beach locales. Many of her stories take place on the islands, which she has visited around the world.
Rachel writes complex, multicultural stories centered on strong women in jeopardy, fighting for love and their own lives. When not writing, this read-a-holic can be found listening to audio books, reading the Book of Jeremiah, or scouring soap opera blogs. Rachel resides in Houston with her three sock monkeys.
