Welcome to

I am Rachel and these are pages dedicated to me and the things that I love to do.


I have done a lot of travelling having lived in lots of different places so choosing a picture was tricky. I opted for one of my favourites.

This is Freshwater West in Pembrokeshire, Wales. A blooming beautiful beach with sand dunes to explore, a wide expanse of golden sand to stroll upon as well as dramatic cliffs, multicoloured pebbles and a seaweed hut. And surfers. Lots of surfers. And temporarily, it accommodated Seashell Cottage, home of Dobby.

Whenever I head back to Wales, this is always on my visit list.

Books are a joy!

I love reading and average about a book a week. I love to hear about books that you think are a good read so please share!

Link to my Blog Spot to read my latest book reviews, starting with “I am the Messenger” by Markus Zusak.

I am also a reviewer on reedsy.com/dishttps://reedsy.com/discovery/user/racheldeemingcovery where you can enter a request for me to review your book. Just click on the link.

Not only do I review writing, I also do some of my own! Click on the Reedsy Prompts image to be transported to my fictional efforts.

I also write at Vocal.media, where I currently am publishing more of my own original short stories. The link will take you to my latest one.

See what I’m up to

I’ve usually got something on the go so look at my latest project/make.

Here, I’ve painted a sign for our back yard to go under a cactus shaped light and some banana leaves wall art. It’s rough and ready – just the way I like it!

The fingers are not painted.

What else?

A work in progress…
