As far back as the fourth grade, Rachelle McCalla knew she wanted to be an astronaut. Her best friend wanted to be an author, and so they argued about whose chosen profession was better. Rachelle soon discovered she had no aptitude for science, math, or weightlessness. She’s been writing ever since.
Rachelle is a graduate of Hastings College and the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary, where she learned her husband’s Greek skills far surpassed her own. Together they have served a variety of ministries in Iowa, South Carolina, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Nebraska.
When she’s not writing, Rachelle spends most of her time working on her servant’s heart with her four children as relentless but adorable taskmasters. In her free time, she is an overly-creative cook, a distracted reader, and an avid gardener whose black thumb of death strikes fear into plants everywhere. She is forever grateful to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for his eternal love and forgiveness, to her family for their continued encouragement and support, and to her best friend from the fourth grade, who gave her the idea to write in the first place.
