Rae wears too many hats: novelist, poet, playwright, special needs mom, homeschool mom, former foster parent, actress, director, and theatre educator. She was recently published in 4 Horsemen Publications’ 2021 anthology Teen Angst Mix Tape Vol. 1, received Honorable Mention in the Malice in Memphis Hit Me With Your Best Shot Contest in 2018, and have two short stories forthcoming in a local writers anthology, Malfunction Junction. Rae loves video games (sucker for Final Fantasy), blues music, and Mediterranean food. Some of her favorite authors/poets include Neil Gaiman, Carl Dennis, Taylor Mali, Diana Gabaldon, Brandon Sanderson, Leigh Bardugo, and Maggie Stiefvater. She writes every spare moment she can steal, which is mostly at night when the kids are asleep. Therefore, she is always sleep deprived. She is currently revising her second novel, Revenant, and hopes to be querying later in the year. You can catch her on Twitter and Instagram @raehardingbooks.
