About Me

My name is Rachel Kovaciny, and I'm an author.

I'm also a Christian. A Lutheran, to be precise. A conservative, confessional Lutheran, to be even more precise. I believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant word of God. You don't agree, take it up with Him.

I'm also a wife and mother.

I've been writing fiction for twenty-some years now, since I was fourteen and decided I didn't want to be a veterinarian after all. I've been telling stories for as long as I can remember, though, and my parents have a couple of one-paragraph stories I typed up on Mom's old manual typewriter when I was six or seven. I edited my college's literary magazine for two years, have had a couple pieces published in magazines like The Lutheran Educator and Guideposts, and several stories published online. I'm now a staff writer for Femnista, an online magazine devoted to art, literature, history, and entertainment.  And my short story "The Man on the Buckskin Horse" is now available in Rooglewood Press's collection Five Magic Spindles.
