Rachelle Harp grew up in a small Texas town, often wishing she could be Princess Leia or Wonder Woman (either would be awesome). When that didn’t happen of course, she did the next best thing and started writing. Her short fiction has found homes in Galaxy’s Edge Magazine, Perihelion SF Magazine, and StarShipSofa.


Over the years, she’s taught music, history, and at writing conferences. She’s a band director’s wife and mom to an amazing little girl. When she’s not writing, Rachelle is drinking coffee and trying to keep the cats off her computer while writing her next adventure.


Her debut YA dystopian novel, The Breakout, is now available from 48fourteen Publishing.
