“Reading should inspire the imagination, challenge the mind and above all else; be enjoyed!”~ RE Harper
Rachael Elizabeth Harper was born on the 28th June 1988 in Warrington, Cheshire. Having wanted to be a writer from a young age, she is delighted that people are finally able to read her books. As an avid reader herself, Rachael knows only too well the power of getting lost in a good book.
Having gained a degree in Early Childhood Studies from Staffordshire university; Rachael has always been fascinated by how somebody’s psychology is shaped at an early age, which is why she enjoys educating and supporting people. She currently works as a foster parent alongside writing her novels and also owns an educational website about what it’s like to live with ADHD (Attention Defict Hyperactive Disorder) which contains a variety of resources.
In her spare time, Rachael enjoys volunteering and being an active member of her local church. She has been a practicing pentecostal Christian for twelve years (see below for more information). She also enjoys exploring new places, binge watching interesting TV shows and exercising at the gym so she can ultimately eat more chocolate.
Rachael started writing short poems at the age of ten after her school received a visit from a local poet, this branched in to poems, songs and short stories, before she finally was able to work towards completing her debut novel. Her first series ‘The Corrupted Trilogy’ questions how experiences and choices inform our identity, within the backdrop of a murder mystery. The standalone prequel to the trilogy is avaailable now and focuses on Dr. Daniel Robertson’s past trauma.

Q and A
What is your favourite book?
I have so many books I like to read, but my favourite will probably always be Little Women by Louise May Alcott. It’s just so moving and is a journey of 4 girls who change into amazing women.
What's your favourite movie?
There are so many movies I love, but my ultimate favourite movie has to be ‘Educating Rita’ staring Julie Walters and Michael Caine. That movie changed my life. It helped me to see that it’s never too late to get an education. Plus it’s full of 80s nostalgia and did I mention Julie Walters?
What inspires you to write?
Nothing inspires me more than people; how they act? What they are thinking? It’s just such a mystery and questions like that help me to create interesting characters that hopefully people will love reading about.
