A BIT ABOUT ME
Rachel Huffmire grew up in the middle of a Utah wheat field where she found plenty of time to read and dream in the simple pace of the country. Her mom paid her a dollar per classic novel she read so, in a quest to amass a small fortune, Rachel read over 200 classic novels by the time she reached junior high. She performed in over 16 musicals through high school, learning about character development, directing, and storytelling. After dabbling with writing novels and stage plays, she ran to the BYU bookstore for her first job. She sat behind the register, voraciously reading Shannon Hale novels while Brandon Sanderson and other internationally selling authors held book signings in front of her. It was then that she began dreaming up plots of her own.
She found time to write each day during her babies' nap times and on long road trips. While attending her first writers conference, Rachel met the wonderful girls at Writing Through Brambles and became a part of the supportive mommy-writer group. She found a home for her debut manuscript, "Shattered Snow" with Immortal Works and a few months later joined their team as an acquisitions editor.
Rachel currently lives in Southern California where she enjoys sand at its finest: the beach and the desert. She loves to play board games with her two little boys, writes about time travel, virtual reality, and djinn, and reads bedtime stories to her husband every night.
