The Hope of Azure Springs was a one book deal. I didn’t expect more than that so I was nothing but excited. My editor and I got to work polishing it up and things went along like scheduled.
Then we got talking about other books and ideas and she decided to take the book I wrote the summer of 2017 to committee. I didn’t realize I’d be just as nervous waiting for feedback on a second book as I was on the first but I was. They came back with a few requested changes. I’d done that before so I went to work. The next time they discussed the book they agreed to take it to the publication board.
Happy day! The Publication board loved it and offered me a two book deal. Neither of these two books will release for a while but they are in the works and I couldn’t be happier to be working with Revell again.
I am so excited to introduce you to these new characters and their stories. They are some of my favorites!
More details to come. . .

Congratulations Rachel. I can only imagine the lives that will be touched in special ways as we all get to read your books. I am very excited for you.

I just finished reading “The hope of Azure Springs” which I could hardly lay down. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I am an avid senior reader…always have at least one book I am reading , and will certainly follow you and your books. I actually knew a lady that was on a orphan train and was adopted in Oklahoma. She was my uncle’s wife’s mother. I like the story, but so enjoy the truth of what happened, the history exposed. I also live in Washington on the east side of the Cascades. I am looking forward to seeing more books from you. I preorder books from CBD as soon as I see a new book from favorite authors so I will be watching for yours. God bless you and your family.

Thanks for contacting me! That means so much. That’s amazing that you know an actual orphan train rider. The stories are so fascinating to me.
Thank you for following me and my books. I’ve got several in the works.
(If it’s not too big a favor to ask Id be honored if you left a review on amazon or anywhere else so people will be able to hear what you thought of the book)
Thanks again! Your comment made me day.
