Rachael Lucas lives by the seaside with her partner (who is also a writer) in a rambling Victorian house full of books, children and spiders. She wrote her first novel on a typewriter when she was only eleven, and bundled it up and sent it off to a publisher called Pan Books, who published her favourite authors. It was very kindly rejected, but they told her to keep writing, so she did.
Some years later (more than she'd like to admit) her debut novel SEALED WITH A KISS became a bestseller, reaching the Amazon top 10. Bestselling romantic comedies COMING UP ROSES and WILDFLOWER BAY followed this.
Rachael's young adult novel THE STATE OF GRACE is published in the UK by Macmillan Children's Books - other countries to follow.
