Times gone by snatch Rachelle close, so she reads and writes about years long ago--her passions include the Reformation, Revolutions, and romance. In the space of a summer between sophomore and junior year, Rachelle wrote a novel set in 1566. Two years later she had finished two more novels and signed a three-book deal with her dream publisher. Her debut novel, The Sound of Diamonds, released in June 2015. Find out more about Rachelle, like that she's a homeschool grad and Oreo addict, at http://rachellerea.com.

I can't say that enough! You can't learn how to fly a plane by watching one glide across the sky, but you learn a lot watching a sentence soar. So read in your chosen genre--and out of it.

And check out GoTeenWriters.com. I learned most of what I've learned about writing from them. :)(less)

Reformation-era England piqued my interest because my family has both Catholic and Protestant roots--and never were those tensions more keenly felt than at that volatile time when Protestants wanted to be respected and Catholics felt their religion was threatened.

I probably enjoyed most the research that led me to passionate hearts on both sides of the conflicts: those who were willing to fight for what they believed in even if there were others who believed just as strongly the exact opposite things! I hope I highlight that well in Diamonds. :)(less)

Who’s ready for the next sweeping Edwardian romance from Roseanna M. White? I surely am! So excited about reading Roseanna’s next release, about a heroine named Ella. Roseanna is one of my favorite authors and editors, and I always adore her books.


Want a look at the face of her next book, coming September 2016!?
