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

Thank you, Rachel for coming into Layfield Primary School and sharing your books with our Early Years. The children loved listening to your story books and thoroughly enjoyed the workshops you delivered. The children learnt so much about animals and caring for the environment. We were then inspired to find out more animal footprints! Everyone had a super morning! 

 I can happily recommend Rachel to you to come in and carry out the workshops in your Early Years setting.


Rachel has delivered some outstanding Literacy training for trainee teachers at the North East Schools Teaching Alliance based at Nunthorpe Academy.

Her sessions are always informative, useful, well-resourced and thoroughly engaging. She uses a mix of well planned activities, many practical in nature. Her open, relaxed style holds the attention and she always provides a range of useful strategies which can be applied in the classroom. Rachel is incredibly knowledgeable and she effectively shares that knowledge in her sessions as well as willingly providing help and support to trainees who need it further down the line.

Thank you, Rachel, for all your hard work and dedication to improve the Literacy of our students, our trainees and all of our teachers. With each session you inspire us to do this better! I can happily recommend Rachel to you for any Literacy / English based training.
