Rachel is a work from home mom who LOVES to read. She enjoys good (clean) books of all kinds. However, she has a soft spot for historical fiction. There is something magical that can only be found between the covers a book and her desire is to share that piece of magic with you. Rachel has been reviewing books since 2014 and is the sole owner/operator of Bookworm Mama. Homeschool Mom, Public School Mom, Assistant Events Coordinator, and Worship Leader are just a few of the "non-bookish" roles she has.


Rachel currently works as an Author Assistant for Roseanna M. White and is part of the team at JustRead Publicity Tours. You can also find her book gushing at the group blog, Hoarding Books which hosts First Line Fridays.

Rachel got into blogging during a very rough season for their family. Ezra, Zach and Rachel's second son, was diagnosed with SCID when he was 3 days old. SCID is commonly known as "bubble boy disease". Thankfully their then 2-year-old son, Ezra's big brother, was a 100% match for a bone marrow transplant. At 9 weeks old Ezra underwent the transplant and now three years later he is well on his way to being a "normal" kid. The long-term prognosis is that Ezra will live a completely restriction-free, healthy and normal life. Currently, he is on zero medication, he no longer needs to make a trip to the ER when he spikes a fever, and he recovers from colds faster than anyone else in the family. The Dixons have spent the first couple of years of Ezra's life in strict isolation to protect him as his immune system began to function. Rachel is a "Stay at Home Mom" and was very busy caring for Ezra, but she needed an outlet, a hobby. So she turned to books. Rachel has always loved reading and when she learned that she could support her addiction and the authors she loves, she jumped all in! Her passion is to share "STORY" with you and to be a light to those around her. Ezra is now a very active Kindergartener and thanks to a fully functioning immune system he is attending the local Elementary School. More about Ezra
