Hi, I’m Rachel.

I’m grateful you’re here. My next book, GIRL WARRIORS: How 25 Young Activists Are Saving the Earth , is due out on April 6, 2021 (Chicago Review Press).

On the front lines, these climate activists — all under age 25 — are fighting to reverse the damage we’ve done.


Pull up a chair.

Let’s talk about how we can work together to create a new future. I became a reporter when I was 21 and moved to the Czech Republic to write for The Prague Post. My writing has appeared in The Washington Post, The New York Times, Yahoo, POPSUGAR, and more.


I’m listening.

I write because the climate crisis is killing people all over the world. My feature for The Washington Post about these teen activists hustling to save the planet is what inspired my current book.
