Rachel Abbott was born just outside Manchester, England, and spent most of her working life as the Managing Director of an interactive media company. After her company was sold in 2000, she fulfilled a lifelong ambition of buying and restoring a property in Italy. She now splits her time between homes in Italy and Alderney, where she writes full time and has just completed her sixth novel.
Rachel launched her first novel Only the Innocent in November 2011. The book was self-published in the UK through the Kindle Direct Publishing programme on Amazon, and reached the number 1 spot in the Kindle store just over three months later. It held its position for four weeks, and was the second highest selling self-published title in 2012.
Since then, Rachel has gone on to write a further four best selling novels - The Back Road, Sleep Tight, Stranger Child and Nowhere Child (a novella). Her fifth book, Kill Me Again, was launched on 17th February 2016 and her sixth - The Sixth Window on 21st February 2017.
In August 2015, Amazon confirmed that Rachel is the UK's bestsellling independent author over the last five years. She is also listed at number 14 in the list of bestselling authors - both traditionally and independently published - over the same five year period.
Her fourth novel - Stranger Child - was the 11th bestselling novel in the first half of 2015 and the most borrowed book during that period.
