News and events
Please join Rachel on Sunday, December 11, 2016 from 3-5 p.m. at the fabulous Elliott Bay Book Company to celebrate the launch of the second Ann Dexter novel, Notes from Hell. Come early to get your holiday book shopping in at one of the best independent bookstores in Seattle and stay for snacks, drinks and song! Because this novel has an opera theme, two talented local vocalists will perform La ce Darem la Mano from Mozart’s Opera Don Giovanni. Rachel will read from and sign copies of her new novel. Guaranteed fun and frivolity!
On Thursday, November 17th, 2016 Rachel will be joining fellow Pacific Northwest mystery writers Martha Crites and Curt Colbert at the Port Townsend Library for a panel discussion moderated by Waverly Fitzgerald, Managing Editor of Rat City Publishing. We will be discussing how and why we write mysteries, read short passages from our novels and answer questions. Signed copies of our books will be available for puchase afterwards.
Leap of Faith Book Launch Party was a great success! We packed the house and sold out the book. But, fear not — more copies have been ordered and are now available at Elliott Bay Book Company, your favorite independent bookstore and online here.

About the book:
Seattle Times reporter Ann Dexter is always on the hunt for the big story – the one that will catapult her from beat reporter to the Pulitzer Prize. When a wealthy widow jumps to her death from the city’s suicide bridge, leaving all her money to a sketchy New Age church and its resident psychic medium, Ann is on the case. Intent on exposing the church as a fraud, Ann signs up for a psychic workshop and finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very man she suspects.
Eager for justice, Ann follows a trial of clues that lead from the board room of a software startup to a Mexican spa and retreat center. Ultimately Ann’s search for the truth brings her face to face with a twisted killer and challenges all her beliefs about love and life and death.
