I, one Rachel Machacek, was born in Rochester, NY, but lived most of my life in and around Washington, DC, save a stint in Manhattan here and an island summer there. My words have appeared in a number of newspapers and magazines where I’ve written about pretty much everything including dating, travel, food, beauty, and pirates.
I published my first book — a memoir about dating — in January 2011. It’s called The Science of Single: One Woman’s Grand Experiment with Modern Dating, Creating Chemistry and Finding Love. It is fantastic. Since then, I decided to follow love to Richmond, VA where I am teaching yoga and writing another book about something other than dating. I can hear the trains five times a day.
