About Rachael

Hi everyone! I am a native Louisianian, hailing from the small town of  DeRidder, LA. New Orleans always seemed like a distant, mystical  land growing up, so being at the University of New Orleans is truly a fantastic experience.  I received my Bachelor’s in English Literature from the University of Texas at Austin and decided to come back to the motherland to pursue my Masters of Fine Arts in  Creative Writing at the University of New Orleans. When I’m not writing, I’m tending my backyard vegetable garden, playing Dungeons and Dragons, reading weird books, petting my 150 pound dog, devouring seafood, or watching sci fi/horror movies in the dark. I look forward to meeting all of my UNO students and chatting about life, the universe, and everything.
