GET UPDATES FROM Rachel Blaufeld
Rachel Blaufeld is a social worker/entrepreneur/blogger/licensed inventor turned ROMANCE author. Fearless about sharing her opinion, Rachel captured the ear of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and inventing a product, often at the same time.

With a background in marketing and clinical social work, Rachel merged the two into both a sounding board and an outpost on being a mom to tweens, wife/partner and business person. As a true hybrid between a parenting and a business-savvy blog, Rachel’s posts have been featured regularly at Modern Mom, StartUpNation and CorpNet.Com.

In 2014, Rachel released her first fiction novel, Electrified, an Amazon Romantic Suspense bestseller. Since then, she has published four more books...with at least one more on the way.

When not writing or hiding behind her computer, Rachel can be found watching basketball or listening to rock music with her two sons.

(0) Comments | Posted December 4, 2015 | 4:14 PM

I've been a little down this week...

After putting a few finishing touches on my latest work-in-progress and sending it to my editor, a huge let-down washed over me.

It is hard to explain, but it happens to me every time I finish a story. There are these long...

Oh, the Glamour of Publishing a Book

(3) Comments | Posted September 8, 2014 | 10:28 AM

Over the last few months, I've had a lot of inquiries about what it takes to publish a book.

Like, "Oh, so you just slapped that puppy up on Amazon?"

Not quite.

A lot of work goes into publishing a book other than having a marvelously, fabulous, original...

Little Bit of Hand-Holding This Mother's Day

(0) Comments | Posted May 8, 2014 | 6:04 PM

This week is Mother's Day. You know, the one day of the year where we pretend for a single moment in time that life with children, no matter what their age[s], is idyllic and sweet. Kids all over, far and wide, in cities and on farms, serve breakfasts in bed,...

Being Thankful For Team Ethan this Thanksgiving

(1) Comments | Posted November 27, 2013 | 11:11 AM

Nothing says the holidays are approaching like the Whole Foods parking lot a few days before Thanksgiving and Hanukkah combined with a snow storm supposedly on the way.  I am grateful I am finished with that part of my week.  It was such a contradiction with holiday tunes rocking the...

A Mom's Game of Tug of War

(0) Comments | Posted August 7, 2013 | 1:44 PM

Heading into week number three of the boys being away at camp, I decided to reflect a bit on the last two weeks sans kids. I will admit: It has been nice. Really nice. Sometimes, a little too quiet and others, a bit too much time with just Henry and...

No Longer a Mom to Single-Digits: Parenting Two Preteens

(0) Comments | Posted May 23, 2013 | 3:54 PM

My baby is turning 10 this weekend, and I would happily give up my slice of birthday cake if he did not have to grow any older! That says something because I adore cake... but really, OMG -- 10! I no longer will be a parent of a child who...

The Boston Marathon Tragedy: One Mom's Chain of Events

(1) Comments | Posted April 16, 2013 | 11:10 AM

At 2:50 p.m. yesterday, I was making a pot of coffee before heading out the door to shuttle my 12-year-old son to his Bar Mitzvah lesson. Little did I know that at the same time, two bombs were detonating at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

By 3:15 p.m.,...

Seeking Solace With My Grocery Cart

(1) Comments | Posted April 8, 2013 | 5:37 PM

I have this vague memory of loving, no, not loving, but adoring grocery shopping by myself when the boys were little. I remember either going to the store when my husband was home or indulging in a sitter to go as being my best luxury. Something about wandering through the...

Love Lessons from the Top of the Closet

(2) Comments | Posted February 14, 2013 | 5:30 PM

Can a leak in the roof be serendipitous?

Normally, I would answer 'no,' however, in this case, I am starting to think that my recent one was lucky. A few weeks ago, the snow came melting through the crawl space above my office closet, which required me emptying the...

My Body Is at my Desk, My Mind Is in CT

(2) Comments | Posted December 18, 2012 | 4:18 PM

There is no way that I can eloquently put into words how I felt/feel after the gut-wrenching, heart-breaking, devastating tragedy in Connecticut last week. I have kids that go to school every day. They take forever in the morning to get dressed and pack their bags and grab...
