Hi there, I'm Rachael. Thanks for stopping by! With a new book and a new year, I thought this would be a good time to introduce myself. Here are some random facts about me.
My favourite food is seafood
I love animals, even though I am allergic to most of them
My happy place is anywhere that's by, on, or, because I'm scuba certified, in the ocean
When I was in Italy a few years ago my friends and I accidentally ended up on Italian television as part of a pizza flashmob - at least that's how the Italian man tried to translate it. I think it must have been national pizza day or something like that.
I have one tattoo... undecided if I will get more
My favourite author consistently is Rick Riordan
My dream vacation would be a tropical sailing trip, preferably through the Mediterranean so I could also visit the historic sites of Ancient Greece and Rome, which I am a complete nerd about.
I once repelled down a river in Costa Rica in jeans, though not by choice - the jeans I mean, not the repelling. That ending up being really fun, even though I'm terrified of free-falling. Unfortunately, the airline had lost my luggage on the way to Costa Rica, so I clambered through the jungle in denim.
I am extremely weak to spicy food. A friend swears I once called a caesar salad "spicy", though I have no recollection of this event (and if I had it would have been referring to the pepperiness of the dressing, but I digress)
I am very much a morning person
My biggest pet peeve is people who are inconsiderate of others.
Black tea is the best tea
One of my favourite tropes is enemies to lovers, and one of my least favourite is love triangles or when the chosen one is suddenly amazingly good at things without any explanation. I love the chosen one trope, but don't make it too easy.
So there are some useless facts about me that you didn't need to know, but I hope you enjoyed it. Do we have anything in common, anything that surprised you? Thanks for connecting, and please share some fun facts about you in the comments.
