About Me: Rachel Poli
Let me tell you 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. It stuck. I like to write in a few different genres, though I main in mystery and love to write a good short story 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. Aside from this blog, another great way to stay up to date with my books and also access to an exclusive community, you can check out my Patreon page.
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. I’ve met so many wonderful people and have learned so much about writing, blogging, and a whole lot more. This blog is updated on a daily basis about creative writing, reading, life happenings, and so much more.
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 can be a little all over the place, but I read what I’m in the mood for.
To begin, I interned with a book publicist for a few months and helped out with a blog book tour for a publishing company. I provide services through this blog that help authors market their books or blogger get their blog in order and so much more. It’s a living doing what I love.
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 also contribute to Pure Nintendo magazine writing game reviews.
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.
