Rasil has been a passionate reader since the day she discovered a library. She worked in technology for 10 years before making the leap into a classroom. Her passion for education combined with a love for stories inspires her to write for children. Her first children’s book was published in 2017. When she isn’t writing, she’s reading, travelling, experimenting in the kitchen, or out seeking a new adventure. Rasil has a BA in Government & Politics, a MS in Information Systems, and a MEd in Elementary Education
