Rachael Long

Biography

I live in Somerset, England (UK) with my daughter and write short stories and poetry. My works are offered for anyone and everyone to enjoy!
I have a quirky sense of humour - Monty Python: abstract, surreal. English sardonic might sum it up.
What do I like? Reading; non fiction, historical. Music: everything from Bach to Beatles to punk. And when I'm not doing anything else, I cook, bake and make preserves too.
What I would really like to find is, an illustrator with a similar sense of humour, who would like to draw my creations.

    A very enjoyable read. I don't think I'm giving away too much by saying, if only all pet shops had animals like this!
