Now, Race is in Georgia. Georgia has armadillos. Race likes armadillos, so she might stick around.
Race's first story was told back in PA, in second grade, when she wrote the tale of a young princess captured by a "bad man" who lived in a dark castle. The princess was, of course, saved by a knight. The story ended with the princess and the knight in a tree surrounded by yelping dogs, and Race has never finished the story. In the tree they stay. New stories came and went until she wrote The Virginity Thief (Learn more by clicking "writings"). Rachel decided to seek representation to get Mari Abdo's story out to the world and, while VT hasn't sold, Race is determined. She is working on her latest project, tentatively entitled Encantada.
Also: she likes viruses and you can pretty much ask her anything about Ebola. She watches too much Futurama, and would love to own an African Grey one day (which is in no way related to her watching too much Futurama).
