“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 since the age of 10, she is delighted that she has achieved her goal of putting her books out there into the world for people to enjoy. As an avid reader herself, Rachael knows only too well the power of getting lost in a good book. She has held many job titles over the years including an education lecturer, an online English as a foreign language tutor and has teporarily worked as a waitress, cleaner and census officer.
Having gained a degree in Early Childhood Studies from Staffordshire university; Rachael has always been fascinated by how psychology is shaped at an early age, which is why she enjoys educating and supporting people. She currently works as a foster parent and writes and manages a blog on living with ADHD as an adult, while working towards her next writing project.
In her spare time Rachael enjoys volunteering and being an active member of her local church. 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 10 after her school received a visit from a local poet, this branched in to song writing and short stories, before she finally was able to work towards completing her debut novel. Her first project ‘The Corrupted Trilogy’ is about a woman who struggles with identity and choices set against the back drop of a murder mystery. The first two books are available to purchase on Amazon now with the third due our later this year.

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.
