About the Author

After a flirtation with recruitment, Rachel spent a few years working as a personal assistant within advertising and subsequently the IT sector. After the death of her son and the following year's birth of her daughter, Rachel worked for a professional sports psychologist within the English Football Premier League, eventually moving onto sales and subsequently becoming an at-home mum.

Having lived through abuse from an alcoholic, Rachel is currently studying Alcohol and Drugs Counseling as a stepping-stone towards her goal of becoming a social worker, whilst working part time and writing her second book. She is also currently developing a website where she is setting up a forum designed for survivors of abuse to share their thoughts, feelings and stories. She has participated in several workshops and courses in sexual abuse and counseling and hopes to work in this area with children who have suffered as a result of another's actions.

She has done voluntary work within schools, using creativity to help children learn, and nursing homes and spent a few years as a childminder.

Her greatest achievement, besides her writing, was leading Australia out at the 2002 Commonwealth Games as a volunteer representing Manchester.

When not working or writing, Rachel spends most of her time at home with her daughter, Lucie to whom she is devoted and plays an active role in her school and schooling. She live in Cheshire.
