About Me: Rachel Poli
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.
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’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 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.
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.
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!
