In Story Seven, award-winning poet Rachel Hunter tells a personal story of her battle with Anorexia Nervosa. Her ordeal is touching and emotional. In this private glimpse of her life, she shows how close she was to dying and the realizations that came with it.
Born in 1993, Rachel Hunter has always been fascinated with words and the intricate way in which they combine. Since a child, she has been an avid writer, winding vibrant tales and elaborate stanzas on folded bits of paper.
As the years passed, her love of words never died; her adoration for reading fared no equal. Always with her nose in a book, Rachel took fondly to works spanning all genres. Yet it was the compelling grasp of fantasy and science fiction that wrenched her fascination above all.
In 2007, Rachel was selected a state winner of the Minnesota Promising Young Writers Program. Accordingly, her winning poem, It All Starts with Creativity, was published in An Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans.
Senior year of high school proved another momentous year. A winner of the Oklahoma Young Writers Competition, Rachel was awarded with publication of her Sestina of Elven Regret in the 2010-2011 anthology, Growing Voices.
But her writing does not end there. Currently pursuing a degree in the medical field at the University of Oklahoma, she aspires to illuminate the creative spark of eager readers. Fulfilling the desire to incite intrigue, she seeks to explore new worlds and create vast empires of her own. Empyreal Fate is only the first of her series. Indeed, it is only the beginning.

De Miller- The Amish Accounts- Volume 1-Secrets
As different as the Amish are from the outside world, so is the Palatin Commune from the rest of their Amish brethren. Enigmatic and strict, the leaders of the sect have guarded their privacy for generations. However, that all changes when Jake Crew, a retired TV journalist and part-time covert ops spy, is forced to dredge up past associations involving the restrictive clan. He realizes he must let go of his past if he is ever to have a future. Volume I of Secrets, The Amish Accounts, opens with a top secret military droid mistakenly deployed in the middle of this very reclusive community as the forces of the government, the Army and old friendships clash with the religious powers on the commune in a dangerous game of hide and seek to uncover the secrets that lie within the closed gates.
