About Me

My name is Rachel Poli. I’m a 24-year-old who resides in Massachusetts.

I AM A DAUGHTER, SISTER, AND AUNT.

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 handsome baby nephew.

I AM AN ANIMAL LOVER.

I have a cat named Chase, a dog named Chip, a turtle named Raph, a 56-gallon fish tank that currently homes 17 fish, and a 5.5-gallon tank that homes Donny, my Betta Fish. I brought all these animals home and hope to bring home more someday.

I AM A STUDENT.

After graduating high school, I graduated with my Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education in May 2013. In May 2015 I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in English Studies: Creative Writing. At this point in time, I probably won’t get my Master’s, but I do think about it from time to time.

I AM AN EDUCATOR.

I worked as a teacher’s aide in two preschools, being special education, for eight years. I’m also the director of my church’s Sunday school program as well as one of the main teachers.

I AM A NANNY.

I’ve been a nanny for eight years, watching children with ages ranging from two years to 17 years. Some children with disabilities, some without. I’ve worked for multiple families over the years, but I currently work for one family now.

I AM A GAMER.

Video games are one of my hobbies. I love to play Pokemon, Ace Attorney, The Legend of Zelda, Mario, and much more. My sister and I run a video game blog together called Double Jump.

I AM A READER.

I enjoy reading books from middle grade to young adult to adult. I especially enjoy reading mystery novels. I love going to Barnes & Noble and the library. I prefer physical books, but I do have a Kindle and absolutely love it. So, I guess you can say I play for both teams. I’m an avid book reviewer as well.

I AM A BLOGGER.

I started this blog in May 2012 to get my writing out there as I hope to be published someday. I update this blog on a daily basis. I also have guest bloggers on my site and conduct interviews with authors.

I AM A WRITER.

I have been writing since I was 10-years-old starting off with simple fan fiction. I mainly write children’s, middle grade, and young adult. However, I have tried my hand at scripts, poems, and short stories and I have some ideas for those as well. I am not yet published, but I’m on my way.

  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.’

    1. 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! 🙂
