About Me: Rachel Poli

I Am A Writer | About Rachel Poli | RachelPoli.com

Here’s a little about me: I’ve been writing since I was 10-years-old. Originally starting with Ninja Turtle fan fiction, I began writing because my sister did it and it stuck. I like to write in a few different genres, though my favorite is a mystery as well as short stories and/or flash fiction.

I post novellas on Wattpad and I’ve also stepped into the self-publishing world. My debut book, Sunday Morning: A Collection of 52 Flash Fiction is out now! You can find it on Amazon and a few other places as well. In addition to this blog, another outlet I use for my writing is my Patreon page. You’re more than welcome to check it as it’ll give you access to an exclusive community, locked blog posts on here, the inside scoop of my upcoming books, and more.

I Am A Blogger | About Rachel Poli | RachelPoli.com

This blog began in May 2012. I wanted to use it as an author platform and to share my creative writing with the world. It’s grown so much since then, more than I ever imagined. I’ve met so many wonderful people and have learned so much about writing, blogging, business, and more. While this blog began as an author platform and a place for writers and readers to gather, it’s become so much more. Yes, it will first and foremost be an author platform and for readers and writers, but I’m aiming for it to be a place for all creators. This blog has a lot to offer and there’s a lot to check out, such as:

I Am A Reader | About Rachel Poli | RachelPoli.com

I’m an avid reader and book reviewer. I enjoy an array of genres, though I have my favorites such as cozy mystery and the middle-grade age. I have a Kindle, though I prefer reading paperback copies. Still, I read a book in any format I can get my hands on. I love reading books newly published and ones that have been on the shelves for a little while so my book reviews may be all over the place in terms of the release date. I like to read whatever I’m in the mood for. If you’re an author, publicist, or publisher, I’d love to check out your books.

I Am An Entrepreneur | About Rachel Poli | RachelPoli.com

I interned with Emily Green, a book publicist for a few months and helped out with a blog book tour for Chasing Dreams Publishing. In addition, I run two blogs, contribute to Pure Nintendo Magazine, and am one of the Twitter editors for the 85K90 Writing Challenge. I was also a content writer for Scout Knows and am an article writer on Medium. Helping out in any way I can whether it’s social media marketing, content writing, or book publicity, proofreading, or website help, is a gift to me.

I Am A Gamer | About Rachel Poli | RachelPoli.com

Video games are one of my hobbies and passions. My sister and I run a video game blog together called Double Jump where we post game reviews, gaming news, and opinion pieces. We’re also active on Twitch if you enjoy watching others play games.

I Am Me | About Rachel Poli | RachelPoli.com

The youngest of three girls, I live with my mother, father, and one older sister, Kris. My other older sister lives with her husband and two nephews. I also have a cat named Chase, a dog named Chip, a turtle named Raph, and a fish tank. If I’m not writing, reading, or playing video games, I’m usually playing with the animals or cleaning the house. You can learn more about me on my Patreon page and various social media!

  1. I immediately think ”positive’ – which is a great thing for a young writer to be.I’m old enough to be your grandmother, and sadly have no grandchildren of my own. I have three, hunky, very grown-up sons who I love dearly and a wonderful husband. I too worked with children and encouraged their reading and poetry for ten years and have always been hooked on writing and the arts. I’ve had poetry, articles, short stories and five books published: the latest WHERE ANGELS & DEVILS TREAD (a collaboration of 16 short stories. All genres.) I wish you all good fortune in your writing endeavours and am sure you’ll ‘make it.’

    • This is very sweet of you to say. 🙂 I’m sure your family is lucky to have you and congrats on your own success with your writing. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read and comment on my blog! 🙂

  2. I love the honesty of your About me page. You don’t flower things up, it’s something Irish people love about Americans. I am a published poet and love reading too. You commented on something I wrote on The Street Photographer’s Guide I think. One think I have been told works well is videos. You could do video reviews of books. Like a 3 minute blurb. The 3 minute book blurb, try saying this after too many Guinnesssesss:)
