Rachel Schieffelbein grew up in a small town in Minnesota, where she still lives with her husband, their four kids, and a small herd of pets. Rachel enjoys reading and writing, and showing Arabian horses, which she does at a National level. She also coaches high school speech and directs the high school plays, and is very involved with her community theater.
She writes YA and MG fiction because they're her favorite. She is often inspired by the young people in her life, and she wants to write characters they'd want to hang out with, and that they can see themselves in. IF & WHEN is her current YA novel available for acquisition through TPA.
