Rachel Sarah is grateful to be back in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she writes in a little shed in the backyard. 

Although all around her these days, fires are raging in California where she was raised. Many friends have evacuated their homes. She writes from a place of hope and despair.

Rachel had her first daughter in NYC and was a solo mom for a decade. Everything changed when she moved back to the Bay Area and met a great guy at a book launch party. Today they’re the proud parents of two amazing daughters who are 12 years apart. They inspire her and motivate her to make the world a better place. 

Rachel’s first book Single Mom Seeking (Seal Press) was optioned for a TV series by 20th Century Fox. She has been interviewed by The Today Show and CNN. Solo moms are forever her heroes. 

Rachel has written for dozens of publications, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, Family CircleParents, and Ravishly.

Rachel went to Reed College in Portland, OR, and then The New School in NYC, where she got a B.A. in journalism. In between her college years, Rachel taught English in Mexico. She​ has​ worked as a reporter, a corporate blogger, a textbook writer, a developmental book editor, and a social media strategist. 

Rachel is a former band geek who plays the alto sax. Her stage name was “Roxy.”

She deeply believes what Bréne Brown says: “You either walk inside your story and own it​,​ or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.”
