The Author

Rachel Starr ThomsonRachel Starr Thomson has loved fantasy as long as she’s had an imagination, which is pretty much always. Her passion for the connection between fantasy stories and following God is seen in the Seventh World Trilogy, in her posts at Inklings and Speculative Faith, in her reviewing work with the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour, and in projects like The Romany Epistles (a multiple-author fantasy series posted online — Taerith is Rachel’s contribution), as well as in Rachel’s short stories and other work.

Rachel is a homeschool graduate and the oldest of twelve kids. She’s a freelance writer and editor by trade, writing for publications like Focus On the Family’s, Homeschooling Today Magazine, and Devo’Zine, and editing and critiquing manuscripts of all stripes for publishers and individual writers. She also co-directs Soli Deo Gloria Ballet, a performing arts company that seeks to explore truth and glorify God through classical ballet, music, and the spoken word.
