Rachel O’Laughlin grew up writing adventure stories on an archaic laptop that only ran Lotus Word Pro and froze every few days, which provided a nice excuse to use a typewriter for most of the pivotal murder scenes. After high school, she pushed novels to the backburner for immersion in the arts, touring with her bluegrass band, and a hands-on education in sustainable living. Eventually, she admitted to herself that she missed her first love and returned to fiction writing full time. She lives in Maine with her husband and five kids, listens to alternative rock, and home-roasts her own coffee beans.
Her four-part fantasy series, Serengard, began in 2013 with Coldness of Marek and was completed in February 2018 with Blood of Ashlin. She is currently working on two standalone literary novels and a few short stories.
A collection of places Rachel has commented on her own books, craft, publishing decisions, social weirdness, and other fun things.
