Rachel is a freelance editor and writer who's done brief stints in cable news and book publishing. Before becoming an editor for Upper Deck Entertainment, she launched and operated a successful retail gaming business. Now she helps would-be authors polish and publish, writes copy for websites and magazines, and ghostwrites nonfiction. Recently, she guested on Al Jazeera English's Listening Post to discuss the media's role in the build-up to the Iraq war. Favorite hobbies include community theater; hiking; gluing captions to cats; and examining the (often lamentable) intersection of media, politics, and civic engagement.
