About Rachel Ripley
I was born in Madrid in 1967. I have a Degree in Law at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. My teaching vocation also led me to study the Master Degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language in Antonio de Nebrija University, which allowed me to develop a large part of my career as a teacher of Spanish as a Second Language. Professional experience I worked as an editor of articles on different subjects (economics, labor, psychology, pets, etc.) to Bloogs NETWORK, SL from January 2010 to April 2013. You can see an example of my work in this link http: //animalmascota.com/los-perros-pueden-entender-mas-de-160-palabras/ During this time I published ten articles of 250 words a day, which turned out to be one of the best training for a writer, as the limitation of space and rhythm of daily publication helped me refine and improve my style. I combine this work with my current profession as a Product Analyst and Internal Auditor in a multinational company, although my desire is to devote myself exclusively to literature. Meanwhile, I devote almost all of my free time to write. Awards In 2011 I won the VI P + L Summer Award in the category of short story with the story titled "On the verge of" (www.poesiamas.net), thanks to the feedback of the readers of the magazine, who considered my story as the best among those presented. Published works In 2009 the publishing house El Arte de Escribir (Bubok) selected my short story titled "The Third Secret" for being included in an anthology of best stories selected by the publisher, entitled "Un tren hacia la imaginacion" which was released in 2009. In 2014 I published on Amazon's Kindle my novel "Senderos Cubiertos de Rosas. Currently I'm about to publish on Amazon a bilingual English-spanish story for kids from 8 to 11years old and for all students of Spanish or English as Second Language who want to improve their level entitled "Dunai, el gnomo de las Dunas"/ "Dunai, the gnome of the dunes" Written works As a writer, I like to cultivate both the novel and the story, in different genres. I've written seven short stories framed in different genres: Fantasy, science fiction and horror. I also like to cultivate children's literature, and I have written three stories in this genre. As for novels, I have written four of them, also from different genres (thriller, horror, intimate) and currently I'm writing a juvenile adventure novel."
