Bio: Rachael Ritchey is an indie author with a penchant for helping other writers be the best they can be. She is a mom to four, and they are her inspiration for writing clean YA fiction that anyone can enjoy. Her current series is historical magical realism with themes of hope, courage, redemption, and love. When she’s not writing she’s spending time with her family and friends, dreaming up new worlds, finding new ways to encourage and help other writers, reading, or walking her dog. Rachael lives in beautiful Eastern Washington where outdoor adventure is around every corner.
Favorite thing about being a writer: Being able to take the stories from my imagination and share them.
Biggest challenge as an indie author: Overcoming preconceived notions that indie writing lacks quality compared to traditional. It’s difficult because until you’ve branded yourself well and gained a solid readership, people are not always willing to give you a chance.
Favorite book: The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan
