Rachel Hochberg spends her days matching young readers with good books at an independent children’s bookstore in the Philadelphia suburbs, and her nights thinking about all the good books that have yet to be written. Her free time is filled with reading, cooking, haunting tumblr like a particularly nerdy ghost, singing along to the radio, and watching television with her attention-seeking rabbit, Percy. Someday, they may both be trapped beneath the profuse and teetering piles of books cluttering the apartment–but until then, the piles will inevitably continue to grow.
After an English BA from Bryn Mawr College and a Master’s in Children’s Literature from Simmons College, Rachel can sometimes admit to missing academia; fortunately, she has many friends in the clutches of PhD programs to act as object lessons. Instead, she has turned her creative energies to poetry, short plays, acting, and for the last few years, fiction. She can most often be found merrily blogging away at just-love-what-you-love.tumblr.com.
