About Rachel Verkade
Rachel Verkade has been writing since before she could write... one of her earliest memories is putting together a crude picture book about a runaway circus elephant. Now, with one degree in English literature and one in wildlife biology, she hopes to make this lifelong calling an actual profession. Currently, she's living in England with her husband, three cats, a parrot, and various reptiles. She writes for the website "Nerds Raging" under the name Here be Dragons (or the Drunken Dragon Lady), and has been previously published in On the Premises, The Future Fire, The Escapist, Under the Bed, 365 Tomorrows, 69 Flavors of Paranoia, Liminalities, and Romance Magazine.
