About this author

The last five years have been a hurricane. In 2010, Rachelle graduated from homeschool high school. In 2012, she finished a novel in the space of a summer. In 2014, only months after she graduated college, she signed a three-book deal. In 2015, The Sound of Diamonds, the first in The Steadfast Love series, will hit shelves.

Times gone by snatch her close. So she reads and writes about years long ago. The Sound of Diamonds is set in 1566. Reformation. Revolution. Romance.

She also runs an editing business where she mentors writers in the arts of novellas and nonfiction, blog posts and books. Find out more about her 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.

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)

I enjoy YA fiction for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that strong heroines are celebrated, even expected. Dina Sleiman's Dauntless is no exception. Merry is not only strong; she has to be. She is not only a heroine in her story; she ...more

“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real.”
