About Author Rachael A. Thomas
I am a wife, mother of two, an educator of high school students and an author. I have my B.S. in Biology from Purdue University. I initially started my career in the pharmaceutical industry. When I became a mother I realized my passion for teaching children and went back to school to get my secondary teaching license. I now teach High School Science including Chemistry, Biology and Forensic Science. I have always had a passion for reading books to my children that had a good message and after several trips to Swaziland where I worked teaching children in an orphanage I decided to begin my writing career. Due to my passion for teaching young children through reading I starting writing children’s picture books. I wanted a colorful, creative, intriguing way to get a positive message to children. I became a member of my local writing groups; Write-On Hoosiers and Magic Hour Writers, in order to collaborate with peers. I am an active member at my local church, a very busy soccer mom, enjoy spending time with my husband usually watching the kids play sports and have a secret desire to one day train service dogs.
