Hello, I'm Rachel!

I’m a fiction editor and an author.

As an editor, I've got around two hundred books under my belt and I've worked with the likes of Hachette, Black Library, HarperCollins, Penguin Random House, and Writers & Artists. I love working with authors one-on-one, too!

When I'm not editing, I write fantasy books.
