Rachel grew up in England and has spent a lot of time in and thinking about church.
She studied Modern Languages at university and now works in educational publishing.
She started writing poetry instead accidentally in 2011 when she discovered it was a good way to work out what she felt about things and to play with words at the same time.
She blogs many of her poems at http://rachelwritesagarden.wordpress.com
She lives in South West London where she regularly reminds her church about their food bank box.
