Richelle is a native of Washington State, graduated from Eastern Washington University with bachelor's degrees in Liberal Studies and Math/Science Education. Her quotes have been published in a number of books including the Oxford Philosophy Being Human Course Book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas in Canada, and in a Revlon magazine ad campaign. She has a strong love of the arts―drama, choir, sketching, painting, literature. This author writes whenever and wherever opportunity presents itself and writes young adult books―fantasies, adventures, and some realities, always with a touch of romance. She describes herself beautifully in the following quote:
"I like bubbles in everything. I respect the power of silence. In cold or warm weather I favor a mug of hot cocoa. I admire cats―their autonomy, grace, and mystery. I awe at the fiery colors in a sunset. I believe in deity. I hear most often with my eyes, and I will trust a facial expression before any accompanying comment. I invent rules, words, adventures, and imaginary friends. I pretend something wonderful every day. I will never quit pretending." ~ Richelle E. Goodrich

Dandelions, The Disappearance of Annabelle Fancher is a work entirely different from Richelle's normal fantasy adventures. Dandelions is a suspenseful, human-interest account detailing the harsh reality endured by young Annabelle Fancher. It tenderly acquaints the reader with a lonely young girl and shares her courage facing adversity. Many of Annabelle's experiences were taken from the lives of actual people.
Secrets of a Noble Key Keeper is additional to Dandelions; it is young Miss Annabelle Fancher's original fairy tale written for one of her few friends, Mr. Michael Lundstrom. Destined to be a children's classic, this whimsical story of Dreamland is perfect for everyone―young and young at heart.

Book I - Eena, The Dawn and Rescue: Sevenah Williams lives a quiet farm life until she stumbles upon a mysterious past and learns she is heir to the throne of Harrowbeth. She is the last living of royal blood able to don a peculiar and enchanted heirloom necklace.

Book II - Eena, The Return of a Queen: An enemy at their heels, a dragon stone portending the queen's demise, and an armada prepared to battle against all odds in hopes of altering the future.
Book III - Eena, The Curse of Wanyaka Cave: Deep within Lacsar Forest inside the black walls of Wanyaka Cave, a childhood ghost story becomes reality. Two evil sisters and their brother, along with a dragon forced to do their bidding, combine efforts to manipulate Queen Eena into freeing them from their eternal prison. And it seems she hasn't the power to resist.
