Once upon a time (briefly) Rachael was an English teacher, then her dreams of becoming a novelist came true. Now she spends her days writing romance and women’s fiction in the Swan Valley, Western Australia. Her book The Patterson Girls won the ABIA Award in 2016 for General Fiction and she has also won the prestigious Romance Writers of Australia RUBY Award twice.
When she’s not writing, you’ll find Rachael reading, occasionally sewing, hanging with her adorable Sheepadoodle or listening to audiobooks while driving around or cleaning up after her three teenage boys. The only TV show she watches is The Farmer Wants a Wife and every year she says she’ll read more non-fiction but fails because there are too many good novels waiting to be devoured.
Rachael loves to hear from her readers and can be contacted on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Threads. She also runs the Rachael Johns’ Online Book Club, which you can join on Facebook.
