Rachel Abbott was born just outside Manchester, England. She spent most of her working life as the Managing Director of an interactive media company, developing software and websites for the education market. The sale of that business enabled her to fulfil one of her lifelong ambitions - to buy and restore a property in Italy.

Rachel lives full time in the completed property with her husband and two dogs, and is now able to devote time to her other passion - writing fiction.

Rachel Abbott recommends
Gray Justice (2011)
(Tom Gray, book 1)
Alan McDermott
"This is an ingenious plot, with some surprising but well thought out twists and turns. The pace is fast, and all aspects of the book appear to be well researched - so much so that you might wonder if the author had himself been a member of the SAS. Gritty and brutal in places, McDermott paints very strong visual images throughout the story. I loved the idea of Tom Gray being more than just your average vigilante..."
