Author Spotlight: Rachel Cohn

It's the end of September and I had soooo much fun reading Rachel Cohn's books. I actually read 5 of her books and even had the opportunity to do a little question & answer post with her.

Just a little bio...
Rachel was born on December 14, 1968 in Silver Spring, Maryland and grew up in the DC area. At the age of seventeen, she went off to Barnard College and graduated with a B.A. in Political Science. She moved out to San Francisco and started working at a law firm. This is when Rachel started writing her stories. Now, she lives in Manhattan where she is on the search for a great cup of cappuccino.
