I’m the author of Eat With Joy: Redeeming God’s Gift of Food, published by InterVarsity Press in February, 2013.

(You can buy it from the publisher, at Hearts & Minds Books, Amazon, Powell’s, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, or wherever it is you buy books. And if you’re not the book-buying type, you can ask your library to stock it.)
I’m also the author of a book about Jesus for children with the working title God’s Upside-Down Kingdom. It’s the third in a series launched by Peter Enns. The publisher is Olive Branch Books, a division of Peace Hill Press, which produces quality educational materials for children. Expect to see that book sometime in 2013.
My writing has appeared (and reappears) in places like Christianity Today, Sojourners, Books & Culture, The Huffington Post, The Christian Century, RELEVANT, Catapult, The Suffolk Times, PRISM, The Progressive Christian, Creation Care Magazine, and Flourish Magazine; one of my essays appears in Bella DePaulo‘s book Singlism. I’m a regular contributor to Christianity Today’s popular women’s blog, Her.meneutics, and I tweet @rachel_m_stone.
I live in Malawi (that’s in south-central Africa) with my husband, Tim, who is a lecturer in Old Testament/Hebrew Bible at Zomba Theological College (basically, a seminary) where I also teach writing. Once a week, I volunteer at the local hospital in the women’s health departments (my favorite is labor & delivery.) We have two little boys.
My masthead is indeed a sideways picture of me holding a blanket I made, with my signature wild tights peeking out from the bottom. I made this blanket out of scraps of old jeans, and I think that writing is often like that blanket–scraps we’ve taken from things gathered here and there, patched together into something that’s useful, and maybe even comforting.
