My name is Rachel Poli. I’m a 24-year-old who resides in the United States.
I AM A WRITER.
I have been writing since I was 10-years-old starting off with simple fan fiction. I write a little bit of everything, but I mainly write children’s, middle grade, and young adult. I’m in the process of self-publishing my first novel.
I AM A BLOGGER.
I started this blog in May 2012 to get my writing out in the real world and use it as an author platform. However, it’s become so much more than that. I update this blog on a daily basis with short stories, book reviews, writing prompts, and fun informative articles about reading and writing. I also have guest bloggers on my site and conduct interviews with authors.
I AM A READER.
I enjoy reading books from middle grade to young adult with the occasional children’s book sprinkled in. I especially enjoy reading mystery novels. I prefer physical books, but I do have a Kindle and absolutely love it. I accept book review requests as well.
I AM A FREELANCE WRITER.
I interned for Emily Green, a book publicist, for a few months where I found book bloggers and reviewers and reached out to them for certain projects. Now I work part-time as her assistant book publicist on a project by project basis. I also provide many other freelance services such as virtual assistant work, content writing, and more.
I AM A GAMER.
Video games are one of my hobbies and passions. My sister and I run a video game blog together called Double Jump, feel free to check it out.
I AM A STUDENT.
I have graduated high school, received my Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education, and I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in English Studies: Creative Writing. I’d love to go back someday and get my Master’s, but I’m not sure if that will happen at this point in time.
I AM AN EDUCATOR AND NANNY.
I worked in preschools for about 8 years before quitting to pursue my writing career. I continue to nanny, however, and have been doing so for almost 10 years. I’m also the director and teacher of the Sunday school program at my church.
I AM A DAUGHTER, SISTER, AUNT, AND PET OWNER.
I am 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 my toddler nephew. I also have a cat named Chase, a dog named Chip, a turtle named Raph, and two fish tanks. I brought all these animals home and hope to bring home more someday.
