Pixie Dogs: It’s Not Easy Being a Princess is dedicated to Rachel’s Nana, Maria. Maria was an encouragement and inspiration for Rachel. Unfortunately, Maria passed away due to Covid. Dedicating the first book was a way to honor her influence and to thank her for all she had done.
Rachel is always thinking of others. “I want children to make achievements. I want them to think, ‘If a character can do this, so can I!’ I want kids to know that there is still magic in this world, in a way.”
Rachel does really want to inspire other people,” adds Roslyn. “Rachel has this amazing ability to see the good in everyone.” Roslyn recalled a time when Rachel was in high school and came home in tears, very upset, regarding something that was said to her. Roslyn asked her why she didn’t respond to the insult. Rachel told her mother, “Why would I ever want to make anyone feel the way they made me feel?”
Rachel, now 26, is working on a second book and is already dreaming of how to expand further. Rachel is constantly dreaming up new characters and storylines. “My goal is to have my stories out there for people to enjoy. I would love to see them on TV shows, like in animation. It would feel like a million dollars for Netflix to make a show.” Rachel even knows who she would like to voice her characters. “I want to make other characters in other time periods and other worlds. The present, the past or the future, or even in ‘a galaxy far, far away.’”
Rachel’s father, Bobby Ore, is a veteran, actor, and stunt driver. Formerly a NASCAR driver, he now owns and operates Bobby Ore Motorsports in Sebring, where training is offered for military personnel, law enforcement, and stunt driving professionals. Ore has worked on films such as Gone in 60 Seconds, Project Swordfish, Dukes of Hazzard and many more.
This October, you have three opportunities to meet and speak with Rachel. She has been invited by the Heartland Library Cooperative to come to each library in Highlands County to speak, read her book, and sign copies of Pixie Dogs. Rachel will be at the Sebring Public Library on October 20th at 3pm, Avon Park Public Library on October 21st at 4pm, and Lake Placid Public Library on October 22nd at 3pm. Come meet Rachel and get a signed copy of her book.
Rachel is talented beyond pencil and paper. She has taught herself to draw digitally on an iPad Pro. She paints, sculpts, and creates art with anything she can find. She has recently participated in painting a mural, creating a butterfly seahorse.
Rachel is inspired by the world around her. “Basically, wherever I go, something happens and it just pops in my head.”
Pixie Dogs: It’s Not Easy Being a Princess is currently being reprinted with an ISBN number and an ebook version. When the new edition is released, it will be sold through Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, and more.
This is only the beginning, the tip of the proverbial iceberg, for Rachel. She has big plans and even bigger dreams. And what’s even more impressive, she will achieve them.
