Rachel grew up in Cumbria and was forced to hike the Fells every weekend. Now, when she can, she does it for pleasure. Married to an Army Officer, she spent twelve years following military postings around the world, living in thirteen different houses. As well as writing, she teaches history and is a personal trainer. Her debut crime series features D I Kelly Porter, who returns in her mid-30s to her native Cumbria, after a spell in the Met that ended badly.

Rachel has also written The Rift and The Line, international thrillers featuring Major Helen Scott of the Royal Military Police.
