Greetings! You’ve landed on the website of writer Rachel Howard. I’m an author, journalist, dance critic, and writing teacher. However, I’m not a web designer (hence the circa 2005 site design—the pink is getting a little old). I’m also not much of a blogger these days, as I’m currently focused on finishing a novel, so you won’t find many new entries on this site. But you will find information on my memoir The Lost Night, links to the ongoing classes I teach at the San Francisco Writers Grotto, archives and examples of my dance reviews, and more random information about me, including my short-lived glory spinning a flag with the world champion Concord Blue Devils. You can also see a picture of my cat. And you can always get in touch with me via rachel at rachel howard dot com. Thanks for visiting.
