Hi! I'm Rachel! I'm the author, most recently of "Starstruck," just out from Delacorte/Random House! It's the first in a YA trilogy set in the dark, sexy, glamorous world of 1930's Golden Age Hollywood. Follow me here for all kinds of "Starstruck" related news, celebrity and entertaiment gossip and tidbits, and most of all, exciting new content--extra chapters, character backgrounds, juicy hidden secrets, and much much more! 

I'm super excited about making friends and finding great readers and great writers! I love all kinds of stories, but am a huge fan of Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, the Luxe, and of course, anything glamorous and show biz related. So please check out my stuff, and recommend stuff to me! Can't wait for you to get to know my characters!


A golden age of glam . . .

Every week they arrive in Los Angeles--beautiful and talented young hopefuls who dream of becoming stars. It's all Margaret Frobisher has ever wanted—and when she's discovered by a powerful agent, she can barely believe her luck. She's more than ready to escape her snobby private school and conservative Pasadena family for a chance to light up the silver screen.

The competition is fierce at Olympus Studios and Margaret—now Margo—is chasing her Hollywood dreams alongside girls like Gabby Preston, who at 16 is already a grizzled show-biz veteran caught between the studio and the ravenous ambition of her ruthless mother, and sultry Amanda Farraday, who seems to have it all--ambition, glamour . . . and dirty secrets. Missing from the pack is Diana Chesterfield, the beautiful actress who mysteriously disappeared, and there are whispers that Diana's boyfriend—Margo's new co-star—may have had something to do with it. Margo quickly learns that fame comes with a price, and that nothing is what it seems.

Set in Old Hollywood, Starstruck follows the lives of three teen girls as they live, love, and claw their way to the top in a world where being a star is all that matters.
