Hello! I'm Rae, a writer, editor, and artist in Indianapolis.
- Jan 2023: A new publication on Substack, Letters from Rae Botsford End. Read and subscribe at raebotsfordend.substack.com.
- 10 Sept 2022: An essay on Geeks Under Grace: “The Gift of Death: The Good Place, Star Trek: Picard, The Silmarillion, and the Holy Bible,” in which I bring up a media trend that tries to solve the meaning of life and the meaning of death with one another, and talk about what’s wrong with that philosophy from a biblical perspective.
Currently working on:
- One short story in the “Ba’byl” universe
- One speculative fiction novel
- Editing a client’s science fiction novel
- Editing a short story I wrote for a contest in 2018
Ba'byl is a short story about a thief...
“Ba’byl” is a short story about a thief who journeys to a failing city and asks the queen why she built it to begin with. It’s a story about what we value.
