And I Was Like November

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Indigo

In a world where everything is glossy and being triggered or offended has become substitute for a personality, this is a glimpse of the other side. Stories of what happens to the women that didn’t get their happy ending, the ones who don’t believe family is everything, and who know that live laugh love isn’t the cure all live here. Part thriller, part romance and all badass, topics like hot, transactional sex; obsession-driven hit and runs; and parrots with violent tendencies and questionable intentions are sprinkled with satire to take the edge off.

Yearning for Nothings and Nobodies


A story about wanting change so badly your teeth itch.

When an eleven-year-old girl finds her drug-addicted and mentally ill mother after a seven year separation, she hopes the yearning can finally cease. Instead, a cycle of painfully familiar longing envelops her, until she is freed by losing what she never had. Darkly humorous tales of dropping acid with the town pedophile, playing pool with gun-toting pimps and spending time in Japanese prison cells with strippers and refugees, are sewn together with poignant emotion in this edgy but relatable coming of age story.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Rachael Biggs writes as though she’s got a secret she’s whispering and you and can’t help but listen. A highly addictive read.”
~Nikki, Goodreads

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Sweetened with Biggs’ acidic wit, the pages fly by like an adventure story.The funny moments are hilarious, and the somber moments powerful, as this young, scrappy girl evolves into a fully self-realized woman…battle scars and all.”
~Dr. Strange, Amazon

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Rachael Biggs cunningly crafted this novel with shear wit, razor-sharp humor, and raw emotion so relatable, I was forced to revisit my own trials and tribulations of youth. She paints the trauma of her childhood into a stunning piece of literature that makes setting the book down hard to do. It’s undoubtedly made an impact on my heart and I would recommend this read to anyone who knows the pain of change. A masterful piece!”
~Casey, Amazon

~Lazy Girl, Amazon
