Meet Rachel

sb-rachel

 

Well, hello there.

(This is me, pictured with my good-looking husband.)

I am a wife. Mother. Writer. Editor. Musician.

When I turned 4, my mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said, “A writer and a singer.” (At least that’s what she tells me.) One of the lucky ones, I now live the life of both.

A journalist by trade, I write for, produce and design a newspaper by day and craft my stories and essays and songs by night, after children are put to bed. My five little boys are live-in muses, as is my husband, whom I have loved madly (sometimes, literally, madly) for more than a decade.
