Rachel Woldum is a “dormant” writer living in Minnesota. Between October 2020 and October 2021, she got pregnant, got COVID, got engaged, moved, had a baby, and got married — so she has a lot to write about, but not a lot of time! If you want to read her work, you’d have to steal her journal, or Google her old film reviews from when she used to write for a now defunct website called The Stake. She loves reading and talking about movies, books, TV, fashion, and interior design, but her favorite thing is dinner time with her husband Drew and son Haakon.
