About Rachel P.

I grew up in a home where books were preferred to TV, music was always on the stereo, and imaginative play was a whole-family affair. Nowadays I watch a bit more TV and use my imagination most often for packing healthy lunches that my toddler will actually eat. I do still prefer reading to most other things, though family dance parties and our growing record collection run a close second.

I love literary fiction but have a special fondness for science fiction and fantasy, romance, and memoir. Audiobooks have lately become my format of choice, but I still relish curling up in front of the fire with a hardcover and a hot cup of coffee whenever I get the chance.

Good writing, rich settings, and finely drawn characters make me happy. I get a great deal of pleasure in matching readers with their next favorite book. Let me be your booktender!
