Profile PicRachel A. Brune graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts in May 2000, and was immediately plunged into the low-stakes world of entry-level executive assistant-ship. Her unexpected journey out of that world and into the military is chronicled in her book of poems and essays, Echoes and Premonitions.

Rachel served five years as a combat journalist, including two tours in Iraq, and a brief stint as a columnist for her hometown newspaper. After her second tour, she attended graduate school at the University at Albany in NY, where she earned her MA in Political Communication, and her commission as a second lieutenant in the military police corps. She returned to the Army Reserve in November 2014.

Rachel published her suspense thriller, Soft Target, in April 2013. Her werewolf urban fantasy novel, Cold Run, the first in the Rick Keller Project series, launched from Untold Press on August 2, 2014. She currently works as an indie author and writing coach, and is working on a new urban fantasy series as well as the rest of the Rick Keller Project.

As an editor and coach, Rachel has helped numerous fellow writers with valuable feedback, contributing her editorial talents to a number of anthologies, including Merely This and Nothing More: Poe Goes Punk, from Writerpunk Press. She has worked with several private clients to polish their manuscripts and shepherd them through the process of editing, revisions, and querying.

In addition to her fiction and freelancing, she blogs her adventures, writing and otherwise, here at The Infamous Scribbler. You can also follow her on Twitter, where she goes by the handle @rachelabrune, or contact her via Facebook.
