Rachel Hayden author On My Trending Stories
My name is Rachel Hayden. I'm a mid-thirties professional, working in the field of human resources for a tech company in Seattle. Born and raised in Indiana, my husband and I moved to the Pacific Northwest and settled near Seattle in 2014. My passion is writing. I blog and I love to write romantic fiction... smutty, dramatic, makes-you-cry romantic fiction.
My main topics:
- Life and lessons learned here in the Pacific Northwest. I live on a peninsula on the other side of Puget Sound from Seattle, and I often write about and blog about living in the PNW. I live in a small town and I love the simple, quiet life where I'm surrounded by salty air and screeching seagulls. I have to take two ferries just to get to the city, and my life is often dictated by tides and the weather.
- Politics. I'm obsessed with politics and I'm about as far left as one can go without moving to a hippie commune. Although I was raised a Republican, I married a black man and was exposed to a whole new way of looking at the world. As a result, I'm very passionate about equal rights for all walks of life.
- Religion. Raised and living as a lifelong Christian who felt like a fraud because I never really "felt" it, I rejected the faith and the deity it worships last year and walked away. My beliefs actually line up with Judaism and I am in the process of converting to Judaism through the Reform movement.
