Rachael Ritchey was born and raised in Northern Idaho with a short, seven year stint in scenic SE Alaska. Inspiration from the picturesque places she grew up has played a huge part in her imagining of the fantasy world she created.
The Beauty Thief is the first book in her YA series called Chronicles of the Twelve Realms. While she considers the books fantasy because of some of the elements of the stories, they read more like historical fiction. Book two is on its way to completion. She also has a middle grade book started that she hopes to find time to finish, too!
Rachael is an every day wife and mother who writes books she would want to read; she writes stories she's proud to share with her kids and you. While her goal is to entertain, she also wants to use her writing to inspire courage and compassion.
Being an author, sharing her stories, is about more than selling books. If you want to contact Rachael, you can find her at
