Hello, I'm Rachel.
Writer, editor, and most recently, biographer (still getting used to that one). Also: New Mexican tumbleweed blown east to skyscraper country.
Currently: I am working on a book about F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sheilah Graham, and Hollywood in the 1930s. It will also contain a lot of drinking, powder blue suits, dances at the Cocoanut Grove, gossip columns, crazy ladies, secret Jews, film lot moguls, and Dorothy Parker quips at funerals. It should be out from Random House around 2015. "Should" of course implying that this whole thing might kill me.
If you want to say hi please do. Or find me in short form, here.
