Hi! I’m Rachael Stephen.
I’m a novelist. Mostly.
I’m also a youtuber, internet monkey, woodland hellbitch, and I know more about coffee than is healthy or advisable. I wrote my first novel while doing my degree in Philosophy.
…don’t worry, no one else knows how to respond to that either.
I independently published my novel – partly because my savvy spans many different fields and partly because I’m a little bit of a control freak when it comes to my work.
I live in a hilariously rough part of Glasgow with my dog and my Ross.
These days, when I’m not writing, I work in coffee and social media, I make videos and digital thingies, and I eat an alarming amount of cake.
Some things you should know about me:
- If it’s gold and I can wear it, I want it
- If it’s copper, and I can shelve it, I want it
- My dog is called Elfie. She’s a wee dick, but I love her.
- State of Flux (my first novel) was about trying to save the *world*
- North of the End (my current novel) is about trying to save *yourself*
Things I've done.
Thirty years ago, trailblazing graffiti-legend Flux, vanished. Now it’s up to Trinai to finish what her hero started. A high-energy dystopian novel.
Navigate novelling wilderness and become a story survival expert. A novel-building and outlining guidebook for writers.
I do videos.

I like to chat. About books, space, writing, mental health, cake, Gilmore Girls, Mass Effect, weird ideas, SJW things, gluten free recipes, Wonder Woman, The Good Wife and lots of other things.
