About the Author: Rachel Branton grew up on a little farm where she loved to visit the solitary cow and collect (and juggle) the eggs, usually making it back to the house with most of them intact. On that same farm she once owned thirty-three gerbils and eighteen cats. She is now married, mostly grown up, and has seven kids, so life at her house can be very interesting and loud. She sometimes wears pajamas all day when working on a deadline, and is often distracted enough to burn dinner. She writes children’s books and romance under the name Rachel Branton and science fiction and fantasy under Teyla Branton.
