‘5-stars! It is rare when a writer puts so much of him or herself on the paper that you can see them bleed, but Rachel Thompson boldly steps out of the shadows and puts herself in the light that shows her wounds, her flaws, her heart and you can’t help but be moved.

There is poetry mixed in with short stories that reveals for the entire world to really see just who Rachel Thompson is and all that she has battled, overcome, or made peace with to become the vibrant, confident, successful woman she is today.

This is a book about rising above; about becoming more than you can possibly believe you ever will be at those terribly low points of your life. It is about surviving, thriving and living and I recommend it more than any other book I have read.’

~ Tracy Riva, Midwest Book Review, Amazon Top Reviewer

‘In “Broken Pieces” Rachel brings out some of the darkest and most traumatic experiences of her life and lays them out for the world to see.

As the title of this book suggests, the personal experiences explored in “Broken Pieces” and their impact on Rachel’s life are fragmented and disjointed. There are certain themes that join them, such as trust, intimacy and sexuality.

The book is written as a series of fragmentary essays. Thompson is a wonderful stylist, and the whole book is written in a very lyrical and poignant prose. This is not a book for leisure reading, but a powerful testament to the resilience and the indomitable nature of human spirit.’

~ Dr. Bojan Tunguz, Amazon Top 10 Hall of Fame Reviewer


From the Author
This is my most intensive work to date.

Broken Pieces is a work of nonfiction essays, poetry, and prose where I open my soul and invite you in for a visit. It’s vulnerable, it’s raw honesty, it’s no-holds barred. This is the first book I’ve published where I questioned if readers and reviewers would respond favorably due to the serious nature of the work.


And yet, they have.

Most readers know me as the funny girl, but this work (hinted at in A Walk In The Snark), shows that I can go into those long buried rooms, the ones we lock up deep inside, and share.
These stories were there. I simply had to wait until my brain caught up.
