Rachele Alpine is a lover of sushi, busting a move on the dance floor, and Michael Jackson. By day she’s a high school English teacher, by night she’s a wife and mom, and she finds any time in between to write. Her words are almost always created with the companionship of the world’s cutest dog, Radley, a big cup of coffee, and a full bag of gummy peaches. She is the author of several books, her newest being You Throw Like A Girl about a girl who disguises herself as a boy in order to play baseball.
