Rachael Stephen is a novelist, video creator and writing coach obsessed with unstoppable girls and powered by cake.
Her debut, State of Flux, has been described as “a sharply written dystopian novel - a mix of Expressionistic gloss and industrial dust.”
She has an MA in Philosophy, and in 2017 she was awarded funding by Creative Scotland to work on her sophomore novel, North of the End, which is still in progress.
In 2016, she created the community project Prep_tober to support writers preparing for NaNoWriMo, which continues to run annually. Her videos on writing having garnered over 400,000 views, she specialises in helping writers use the Plot Embryo Method and haranguing them about theme.
She lives in Glasgow with her partner and countless notebooks.
