Rachel Castleberg

Contributing Writer

Rachel Castleberg, freelance writer and book reviewer, is largely inspired to write by her simultaneous fear and fascination of all things dark. Though she doesn’t teach, she does tutor in English literature and essay writing and will lecture you at length about Margaret Atwood and the correct use of semicolons. She enjoys feeding people, making snide comments in church, and cuddling with her dog Indiana against his will.
