Once upon a time—wait, that isn’t right. Way too fairy-tale like, I get it. Not really my style or yours. Bear with me.

In the year nineteen ninety… Nope, that’s not it either.

Back in the day, some time ago, in a place that isn’t really relevant to anything, there was a little girl. She was given a diary and told she could write anything she wanted inside. The stories were wildly imaginative about things that only a five-year-old knows.

The girl grew and she had a dream—that was relevant. She was going to be a doctor or a counselor or a writer. Maybe all three. She was going to get married young and have five well-mannered children.

And then she grew up—like bam—right from fifteen to thirty-five. And she got married and she had a child—not five—just one, well before the age of thirty-five. She spent some time working in the healthcare field and she realized she’d be a terrible counselor and probably an even worse doctor.

And then she wrote some books. In those books her characters could be anything. Doctors, lawyers, cops, military members, moms, and dads. They could travel in time and get into all kinds of danger. Fall in love. The sky was the limit.

And now here we are.

Love Rachel Trautmiller’s novels and want to join in on the journey?Launch Crew Logo

Please read these guidelines and join the IRRESISTIBLE READS LAUNCH CREW by filling out the form below.


Rachel writes novels filled with murder, mayhem, and romance that leave her readers wanting more incredible twists and turns.

SIDE NOTE: A night-light may be required. Some bleary-eyed mornings have been known to occur. Coffee is recommended.

Rachel began weaving tales well before she could actually write. Those early stories included danger and mystery, Barbies and G.I. Joes, a few sensational heroes and their villainous counterparts. Sometimes the hero had to time warp through a hole in her backyard to save the damsel in distress and sometimes he only had to outwit the aforementioned villain.

Nowadays, she leaves the Barbies to her Extremely Cute daughter (who loves to create her own stories). When she’s not riveting readers with the chaotic and sizzling mess of her character’s lives, she can be found poolside with her husband, daughter, and two super snuggly dogs. She enjoys football, reading, spending time with her daughter, discussing the NFL draft with her husband, and spending time with friends and family. She also loves anything to do with the FBI, law enforcement, and the military. Although she’s extremely knowledgeable about time travel, she has never admitted she’s used this technique herself…
