My name's Rachel and I'm an award-winning writer. I've been lucky enough to have my work produced by the fantastic theatre companies PLOS and Between the Bars. Take a look at the Credits and Reviews section to find out more about those productions.
My writing projects include musical theatre, features, memoir writing, plays, short fiction (for print and radio), fiction, and editorial. I am working on a number of projects at the moment - do say hello if you would like to hear more about any of them!
When writing creatively, I write about what I see around me - the things which unite us all and the things which make a moment different from the next. The joy of writing, for me, is finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, and stories which celebrate the everyday echoes of our limitations, successes, fears and ambitions. So much of a story goes unsaid, unnoticed, unseen or unheard. The challenge I like to give myself is to reveal the story buried in the moments which by-pass us all, every single day. I try and write as if it hasn't been written, but instead overheard.
When I take my creative hat off, I also work professionally in digital content creation, copywriting, proof reading and content management. Essentially, I like words.
Please do say hello if you are interested in hearing more about my work. You can do this via the contact page. Or if social media is your preference, you can also find out more via my Instagram page. I am looking for literary agent representation, so if this is your area of work, and you like what you see here, let's have a cup of tea! I'm an Earl Grey kinda gal.
