Rachel A. Rosen

Author and troublemaker in Tkaronto (Toronto) in the country currently known as Canada. My first book, Cascade (The Sleep of Reason Book 1), was published by The BumblePuppy Press in 2022, and with Zilla Novikov, I'm the co-author of The Sad Bastard Cookbook: Food You Can Make So You Don’t Die. I'm also a teacher, graphic designer, and personal assistant to two cats.
