Rachel Vincent learned to read at four years old, and wrote her first story at six. It was about a class field trip to the zoo. In addition to being her first experiment with the written word, it was also the first and only tale she illustrated herself - it turns out that her talents do not extend to the visual arts.
Since sixth grade, her reading interests have centred around the dark side of literature. In junior high, much to her teacher's distress, she wrote her very first book report about Carrie, by Stephen King. She devoured books about magic, vampires, and werewolves by the dozens. Monsters held a special fascination for her, be they human or beast. And eventually "I love these books" became "I think I can write these books," and she began creating fictional worlds of her own.
Rachel dabbled with short stories all the way through junior high, high school, and college, but didn't begin writing seriously until several years later, when she started her first novel. By the time she had completed four manuscripts, she knew she had found what she wanted to do with her life.
Rachel is the author of the bestselling Soul Screamers series. There are four titles in the series, My Soul to Take, My Soul to Steal, My Soul to Keep and My Soul to Steal already published. The latest title in the Soul Screamers series, If I Die is published in Feb 2012.
Rachel has also written a special short story "My Soul to Lose" which will be available as part of World Book Day in March 2012
