Well hello there! I’m Rachel.
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, is out with Puffin Books in June. Watch out for rather naughty and fast-growing unicorns this summer!
You can also find our work in The Puffin Book of Big Dreams. The Great Imaginarium is about a scientist called Herr Brain and his dog who invent a machine to make children’s dreams come true. I have lots of super exciting projects in the pipeline that I hope to be able to share with you really soon so please pop back for an update.
As well as tapping at my keyboard, I am an abstract artist and can often be found in my studio, covered in paint, listening to Kate Bush or Lady Gaga. You can see my artwork over on my website. I’m a mum to two wonderful humans, married to another wonderful human and we have a dachshund called Dottie Disco Dog.
My writing is represented by super-agent Lydia Silver at Darley Anderson Children’s Agency. Thanks so much for taking a look.
