Welcome to my website! I’m a writer of children’s stories. Mostly in my head, but some are finally being typed!

Some quotes from my “Reading for Pleasure” workshop presented to Primary and Secondary School teachers.

“Rachel was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. Extremely friendly and my most favourite session.”

“Valuable advice and information. I particularly enjoyed the participation element.”

“Reading for Pleasure was well presented, with enthusiasm.”

NASUWT Teaching and Learning Conference, Middlesbrough


On the 13th December 2019, former pupil to Ingleby Greenhow CofE Primary School Rachel Coverdale who is a published children’s author returned to the school. Rachel started at Ingleby in 1972 and left in 1980. She came to talk to the pupils about her job as an author, share her books with the children and to share her experiences of her time at the school as she remembers them. The children were really inspired by her visit which further promoted a love of reading in the school.  Rachel’s books include for younger children ‘Who Hides Here? Footprints in the Garden’ and ‘Who Hides Here? Footprints on the Farm’ and for older children ‘The Boy who Couldn’t’. Children had the opportunity to ask Rachel questions and to buy signed copies of her books. I highly recommend that Rachel visits your school.
