Hot Flashes of Life, is a sometimes whimsical, sometimes thought provoking, always entertaining, whirlwind tour of life seen through her globe trotting short stories. This book features two of Rachel’s favorite genres, Creative Non-Fiction and Flash Fiction. Flash Fiction is quite simply a very short story. But this genre fuels heated debate over word count with proponents voicing opinions from 50 to 1,500 words. The fun part is this genre has become a literary necessity in our modern, 24/7, on-to-go society. Read, enjoy, and remember when.
