From Her Life: As a child Rachel wanted to be a dancer. She worked hard and grew up to be a professional ballerina! After an injury in the late 1970's, she began writing and illustrating books.
Advice for Aspiring Writers: Love what you do! On her website, Rachel says, "Work like this is a dancer's fantasy...Because ballet is so demanding, dancers' stage careers are short. They can only dream of going on and on forever. With art, I can go on and on, and for me it's the only work that compares in intensity and joy."
