Riach is the daughter of an internationally known musician. She grew up in the South-East of England. Her early memories are full of her father’s concerts, TV and radio appearances but she decided, in her teenage years, that celebrity was not for her and pursued an ‘ordinary’ life.
As a an adult she moved to the West Country. Originally a teacher, she has worked in a variety of jobs (including catering and a bamboo factory!) and currently juggles a busy work and family life in Yorkshire, England.
She enjoys reading fiction of all kinds but prefers to write what she calls, ‘Romance wrapped in reality’.
‘After all,’ Riach says, ‘what’s the point of a romantic story if it could never, actually happen – and what’s reality without a little bit of romance?’
