About this author

Rachael Herron is the internationally bestselling author of the Cypress Hollow series (HarperCollins/Random House Australia) and of the memoir, A Life in Stitches (Chronicle). Her newest novel, Pack Up The Moon, will be available in March 2014 from Penguin (USA) and Random House Australia (NZ/AUST). Rachael received her MFA in writing from Mills College and is a 911 fire/medical dispatcher when she's not scribbling. She lives with her wife, Lala, in Oakland, California, where they have more animals and instruments than are probably advisable. Rachael is struggling to learn the accordion and can probably play along with you on the ukulele. She's a New Zealander as well as an American. She's been known to knit.

“Why did some people hear the voice, loud and clear, while others just floated from thing to thing, from person to person, never completely fitting in, never entirely at home.”
Rachael Herron, Eliza's Home: A Cypress Hollow Novella

“That man loved me so hard I knew I’d never do half of what I should to deserve it. And that was the point. He said I never had to do a thing to make him love me. He just did. He just loved me.”
Rachael Herron, Eliza's Home: A Cypress Hollow Novella

“No, Eliza.” He turned his body toward her. His voice was different. Lower. Rougher. “I’m such an idiot. And I’d like to apologize for my actions in advance. But if I don’t do this, I’m going to lose my ever-lovin’ mind.”

“What do you—”

Joshua cupped her face in his hands – those strong, fine hands – and kissed her.”
Rachael Herron, Eliza's Home: A Cypress Hollow Novella
