Hello and thanks for stopping by.
I’m Rachel, a children’s author and artist living in Cheshire.
Here you can find out more about me, my books and hear my latest news.
How to Grow a Dragon
The second book in the How to Grow Magic series by Steven and I is out in April! We can’t wait to welcome you back to Mr Pottifer’s Parlour of Plants for a ROARSOME adventure!
Plant seeds with hot chilli and spoonfuls of spice, add three shakes of pepper then clap your hands twice…
The Drama Llama
I am a huge fan of Ella’s, so I nearly fell off my chair with excitement when I found out she was illustrating The Drama Llama.
Her illustrations are hilariously joyful and I’m so excited for young readers and their grown-ups to meet Alex and his cheeky llama.
How to Grow a Unicorn
I’m so excited to have worked with award-winning illustrator Steven Lenton on our picture book, How to Grow a Unicorn.
It’s a tale of a magical plant shop starring Sarah and her adventures with loads of home-grown unicorns! Out now with Puffin Books.
As seen on CBeebies!
I was so thrilled to see How to Grow a Unicorn narrated by the amazing Cat Deeley in Episode 720 of CBeebies Bedtime Stories. It was broadcast on Thursday 2nd September 2021 and hopefully should be available on BBC iPlayer soon!

Hello there, I’m Rachel a Children’s author.
I’m a writer of utterly bonkers picture books and middle-grade fiction. My debut picture book, How to Grow a Unicorn, gorgeously illustrated by the amazing Steven Lenton, came out with Puffin Books in September last year.
My second book, The Drama Llama, illustrated by the incredible Ella Okstad and also with Puffin Books, was released in April.
