Lisa Dow was born and raised in Peterborough, ON then earned her Bachelor of Arts (major Political Science) at The University of Western Ontario during the late 1980’s when big hair and off-the-shoulder shirts were considered the height of fashion.

Rachel has been writing stories since as long as she can remember. An obsession with Point Horror books led to her first novel being designed and written at the age of ten, though truth be told, it wasn't very good.
The following years were spent reading thrillers, romantic comedies, fantasies, occasionally playing guitar, and dabbling in song writing, all the while continuing to write stories unworthy for print and developing her own style.
A mixture of inspiring authors had a huge influence upon her mind: S. E. Hinton, Mario Puzo, William Goldman, C.S Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkein, Neil Gaiman, J. K. Rowling ... the list goes on.
