They are an amalgamation of ideas, scenes, situations, and people I experienced with a heavy dose of imagination.

I'm truly surprised at how many of my characters turn out. I live with them while I'm writing and in many cases, I feel like a method actor. After I'm finished with a book, I feel like I know them better than their therapist would.

Thanks for asking! Feel free to ask more questions.(less)

Christmas Creek Christmas Romance - An Unexpected Hint of Magic


As an author, I love when stories weave an unexpected and magical direction. It's as exhilarating as riding on a runaway sleigh and realizing I'm not in charge. My Christmas Creek series of romances has surprised me in every way.

Initially, I conjured up Christmas Creek as a town where Christmas lives all year round. I was invited to be in a very special boxed set with Mimi Barbour and her Gang Read more of this blog post »

Amy Armstrong Hi Rachelle, thanks for accepting my friend request. Hope you have a fab day!


Rachelle Ayala I thank everyone who's read and reviewed my books. If you have a paperback you don't need or want anymore, please feel free to put it on Ebay or Amazon so others can buy it used. I've had some readers ask me for paperbacks, but obviously it's too expensive for me to buy everyone who wants a book and ship it. So please, go ahead and resell what you have if you won it in a Giveaway or were given one to review. Unless, of course, no one can tear them from your fingers because you love it so much. :)
