Hello! I’m Rachel, and I’m an editor as well as an author of young adult books.

With my editor hat on, I work for publishers and authors and specialise in fiction (I particularly love young adult, fantasy/sci-fi, and romance). I also work on non-fiction. My clients have included Hachette UK’s imprint Bookouture, Black & White Publishing, and Skyhorse Publishing.

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 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.

Have a wander round my site to find out more, and if you’d like to work with me editorially, visit my services page for more information or get in touch about your project.

Rachel’s detailed feedback was instrumental in making my novel what it is today. Her insights into character development, structure and plotting have massively helped me create a much pacier and more layered book. […] You’ll find Rachel creative, passionate and above all professional and kind. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
