Who Am I?

Hello, I'm Rachel.


I am a writer, blogger, author and runner. I am also a reformed ex-commercial litigation solicitor, for which I am still in therapy. Amongst other things, I have abseiled off Table Mountain, climbed Mount Fuji, cycled 480km across Costa Rica, worked on a game reserve in South Africa, qualified as a scuba diver, and ridden an ostrich.


Throughout my life, I followed a simple yet effective route straight to mental health misery. Suffering from bipolar disorder and body dysmorphia, yet constantly hungry for 'normality', I settled for failing relationships, ill-fitting careers, and a reliance on Blue Nun and Soreen to get me through most days.


Running For My Life is my debut book, detailing my journey from bipolar non-runner to medal-winning marathon runner - and how I discovered happiness along the way. Published by Blink Publishing, released January 2018.


I live in Halifax, West Yorkshire, with my husband Gav and our two girls. I am represented by Jo Bell of Bell Lomax Moreton literary agency.
