A Christian, wife, mom, writer, and book designer, Rachael focuses most of her energy on YA fantasy fiction (Check out Chronicles of the Twelve Realms), but you can find her dabbling in science fiction and contemporary genres too.

She has a passion for beautiful books, so book cover and interior design are high on her list of enjoyable hobbies.

She's boring and would rather talk about you and what you're up to any day of the week, but if she had to talk about her own life it would probably include her four kids and husband, homeschooling, graphic design, books, why it's important to live every day with gratitude, and whatever other topic has been on her mind ... usually to do with the topic-du-jour she's researching for her next fiction

It inspires me to do, in real life, what I ask of my characters and that's to be heroes, to be compassionate, honest, and good.(less)

So sorry, just seeing your question now. Wow! How did I not see this? I almost hate to admit it, but I do. Sometimes I wonder if I'm a little crazy, because by conversations I mean they actually answer back in my head. We've even had a few arguments. haha (less)

I'm giving this one four stars for lovely prose and interesting plot elements. Overall it was probably a 3.5 stars at best for me. I liked it but didn't "really like it." I would certainly read more by Margaret Rogerson and would recommend An ...more

I really liked this book, but I have some conflicted feelings about it as well. I read it quickly and was engaged throughout, so I can't quite place my finger (at least right now) on why I feel dissatisfied overall. If I gave a real review, I'd ...more
The Blood Mirror by Brent Weeks
"Bottom line: this book should never have been written.

Anyone who knows me knows I adore Brent Weeks. His books are highlights of my reading year. Whatever their flaws, they are always exceptionally good reads.

This is the first that doesn't qualify..." Read more of this review »

Good for readers of fantasy who enjoy magic systems

I enjoyed this book for its magic system of powers divided between Houses (noble families) and the tension built between Selene, her mother, and Lord Damien. Selene has come into her ability rather

Leo Tolstoy
“It was long before I could believe that human learning had no clear answer to this question. For a long time it seemed to me, as I listened to the gravity and seriousness wherewith Science affirmed its positions on matters unconnected with the problem of life, that I must have misunderstood something. For a long time I was timid in the presence in learning, and I fancied that the insufficiency of the answers which I received was not its fault, but was owing to my own gross ignorance, but this thing was not a joke or a pastime with me, but the business of my life, and I was at last forced, willy-nilly, to the conclusion that these questions of mine were the only legitimate questions underlying all knowledge, and that it was not I that was in fault in putting them, but science in pretending to have an answer for them.”
Leo Tolstoy, A Confession

“Writing a first draft and reminding myself that I'm simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.”
