Novelist, travel fanatic, & vegetarian foodie. I live with my husband in the English Cotswolds, and have so far published two novels. You can follow my travel and food blog at http://blog.rachelcotterill.com/. I enjoy getting lost in as many different countries as possible, learning snippets of languages so I can ask for directions when that happens, and trying out as many new things as possible along the way. I also collect skills the way other people collect stamps - including dry-stone walling, taekwondo, sugarcraft, EFL teaching, rope-splicing, skiing & snowboarding, knitting & crochet, sailing, embroidery, cooking, and juggling.
