My name is Rachel Smalter Hall, and I’m a former public librarian turned audiobook journalist. Two of my top three loves include audiobooks and knitting, and my favorite song is Cold Hearted Snake as performed by Alyssa Edwards and Coco Montrese on season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in a family of seven that donned bathrobes and towels for our yearly theatrical Christmas Pageant. Since then I’ve lived in Minnesota, Vermont, Rome, and now Kansas City where I knit stuff with my rad knitting group, listen to audiobooks with my family, and drink beer with my co-ed book club.
Hop on over to “Writing Samples” to see some of my work for Library Journal, Book Riot, and more. Thanks for stopping by and looking around!
