R.A. Fischer is the writing team of Rachel Ann Fischer and Ann Marie Knorr-Fischer. Rachel’s early discovery of fantasy role-playing games sparked her imagination and passion for creating worlds and characters. Writing two produced plays made her fall in love with writing dialogue and gave her the confidence to write their novel, based on a role-playing campaign that began in her cousin’s kitchen. Ann’s first memories of writing are from elementary school, where she wrote short poems and stories. Her love for the written word progressed over the years as she wrote for school literary publications and a full-length movie script her senior year in college. She directed and produced Rachel’s plays. Visit their website at www.rafischerauthors.com.
