About Rachel Keener
Much of Rachel's writing is influenced by her Appalachian heritage, and her childhood spent in the mountains of Southwest Virginia and the foothills of East Tennessee. A graduate of Carson Newman College, Rachel moved to North Carolina to attend law school at Wake Forest University. It was there, during class, while her husband took notes for the both of them, that Rachel began to scribble the ideas that would become The Killing Tree. By the time she completed law school she had more than a degree, she had a manuscript, and finally, a clear idea of what she wanted to be "when she grew up." Today, Rachel and her husband call the Winston-Salem area home. She spends her days being a momma to their two little boys. And at night, she writes on.
Rachel’s latest novel, The Memory Thief, follows her first novel, The Killing Tree.
