Hello! I’m Rachel, and I’m a book editor and a YA/children’s author.
With my editor hat on, I work for publishers and writers on adult, YA, and children’s fiction as well as commercial non-fiction books. My clients have included Hachette UK’s Bookouture, Black Library, Skyhorse Publishing, and Bloodhound Books. I have worked on books that have gone on to become bestsellers.
As a writer, storytelling has always been one of my favourite things—I’m endlessly scribbling down plot ideas and devouring books. (True story: I used to write novels instead of paying attention in science lessons.) I have a degree in English and Creative Writing and I’m represented by Thérèse Coen at Hardman & Swainson. If I’m not editing, you’ll most likely find me working on my latest YA or middle grade manuscript.
