The story so far…

My blog is listed on the website for TGO (The Great Outdoors) Magazine. TGO Blogger Network is the UK’s best network of outdoor-themed blogs.

My magazine articles have appeared in a variety of publications including the ‘Mslexia Max’ forum (online platform for ‘Mslexia’ magazine), ‘The Abergavenny Focus’ and ‘Living Wales’.
I write a regular monthly feature about walking, published in the ‘Bwrdd’ newsletter for Wales in ‘Mensa Magazine’.

‘Rachael is a long-standing, regular contributor to ‘Bwrdd’, the newsletter for Mensans in Wales. Rachael is reliable, thorough and professional. But, more importantly, she writes wonderfully. Her articles transport the reader to the trails, hills and fells that she frequents, and when you’ve finished reading you find yourself searching for your hiking boots to plan your next adventure.’
Anders Nilsson, Editor of ‘Bwrdd’ – The Newsletter for Mensa Cymru.

I have written a novel and I am now working on the screenplay.  I am currently looking for an agent or a publisher.

‘Rachael has a fresh, modern style and I think her work will have broad appeal.’
Paula Brackston, New York Times bestselling author of ‘The Witch’s Daughter’.

In October 2017, The Llanfoist Players, a small drama group, performed my stage play, ‘A Breath of Fresh Air’. I have also written a new comedy drama, ‘A Night at the Besties’, for the November 2018 show. Both scripts were written to have a sense of fun to suit the requirements of the group.

‘As a follow up to ‘A Breath of Fresh Air’, Rachael has written a short play called ‘A Night at the Besties’. The whole play is full of fun including the names of the characters giving scope for a lot of over acting. We are still in rehearsal but look forward to our performance in a few weeks’ time.’
Barbara McIntee, Director of The Llanfoist Players
