She is Owner and Editor at Steeped in Pages. Beta reading started as her hobby and has grown into a passion for helping authors see their novels through fresh eyes! Rachel is an avid reader and loves working with new and established authors to improve their stories throughout the writing process. She thoroughly enjoys reading your work and helping you to improve the story you’ve created.
Rachel loves all genres, but her favorites are mysteries, psychological thrillers, and self-improvement. Her current favorites are The Hannah Swenson Mysteries by Joanne Fluke, The Wayward Pines Series by Blake Crouch, and 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton.
Rachel has been married to Bryant for twelve years. She is a mother to three wonderful children whom she homeschools. Enjoying stories is a family affair; they regularly read novels together. Besides immersing herself in stories, she enjoys being outdoors, playing board games, and baking for family and friends.
Why should you hire her?
She gets lost in stories. She connects to the characters and feels their happiness and sorrow. When a friend introduced Rachel to beta reading, she realized she could read beautiful novels and use her passion for reading and writing and her flair for editing to support her family.
She will delve into your story and tell you what she loves about your work. She will give you honest feedback about what could use improvement and will provide your manuscript with a pair of fresh eyes and a clear mind; to show you how your work can go from good to excellent.
