Author Description

When Raeleigh Wilkinson was a preschooler, her uncle found her in furious tears because her cousins told her "only boys can be doctors". Although Raeleigh turned out to be far too squeamish to pursue a career in medicine, she always carried her stubborn conviction that girls can do anything. Raeleigh studied mechanical engineering, and she has worked on robots, rockets, and roller coasters. Raeleigh is a lifelong book lover. She loves long walks to the park with her husband and two children, stealing time to write stories during nap time, and spending far too much time in bakeries. Bedtime Stories for Girls of Destiny is her first.
