“Whatever causes night in our souls may leave stars.” – Victor Hugo.

Rachael K. Hannah was born and raised in the borough of the Bronx, New York City. From an early age, she enjoyed reading and writing, and could often be found with her nose buried in a book, or creating short stories of her own. Her fascination with the city grew from her inspiring explorations of Manhattan when she was a child, ventures which continue to this day.

Rachael’s debut novel, Painting Sage, is now available through Amazon. The story centers around Sage, a fifteen-year-old girl with bipolar disorder, and the journey she and her mother make as they come to terms with the condition. Fresh from this success, Rachael is now working on her second book of the series.

Having earned a B.A. in sociology from the College of the Holy Cross, an M.S.E.d. in education from Manhattan College, and additional graduate credits from CUNY Hunter in Autism studies, Rachael currently teaches special education. When she has time to herself, Rachael likes to read and write, keep up with current affairs, take long walks in the countryside, and practice Yoga. She is also an avid photographer and is passionate about women’s and animal rights, as well as mental health awareness.
