Rel Carroll is a former writing student of award-winning, bestselling authors including Brandon Sanderson, Orson Scott Card, and Jeff Benedict. She is a ghostwriter, developmental editor, 'pseudo-fiction novelist', and founder of RomanSnail.
As small as 154 centimeters in length with natural-blonde hair, the Rel Carroll is primarily characterized by her love of marine conservation, the jazz age, and free expression in art. This peculiar creature is also known for her distinctive singing voice which can be heard anytime day or night; although, she is primarily nocturnal. In addition to American Sign Language, the Rel is fluent in ‘British’ with a working knowledge of Spanish and Lang Belta. She has a preferred diet of dark chocolate and hella-spicy vegetarian cuisine but with only one known in existence, soggy cereal and the color pink remain key threats to this rare species. The Rel is generally tame but not domesticated, so it is dangerous to keep the Rel in an enclosed area without a novel, knitted socks, and canine companion. Frequently migratory, her natural habitat includes enchanted forests, seaside cottages, crowded bookstores, or the middle of a dance floor. The Rel is mated for life with a similarly unique mammal, the Nat (otherwise known as Redbeard, the airship pirate.)

"Arielle provided insightful editorial feedback on my latest book, Harbor for the Nightingale. This novel is a complex alternate history, but her touch made it shine. Her running commentary was priceless. I don't know what I would've done without her. And you can bet I will be asking her to beta-read my next book!"
- Kathleen Baldwin, award-winning bestselling author of the Stranje House series.
"The narrative flows so well together. Having seen both sides (what I said and what Arielle has written), I am so impressed with her writing, and I have so much respect for her as a person."
- Jitu Patel, author of What We Give: A Memoir (International Adviser, Emeritus Professional Member of the ASSP since 1982)
"Working with Arielle is always a good experience. She's got the hard skills of being a punctual, sharp-eyed editor and 'go the distance' writer, but also the much needed and appreciated soft skills of knowing how to ask questions that get you thinking about how your work can be better, and of course putting in just-right compliments and encouragements that can keep you going during the often hard slog that is editing. Having someone so professional and also pleasant to work with is a treat, and my projects are always better off when she's involved."
- Whitney Gibbons, author and illustrator
"Arielle was such an amazing guest speaker for my creative writing classes. When I initially reached out to her, it was to show the students that there actually are jobs out there in the arts. Not only did she deliver on the publisher front, but she showed the kids that art can be a very viable career option for the students if they wish. I couldn't have asked for a better and more wonderful guest speaker. The students loved her!!!"
