Rachael offers a variety of talks and presentations to suit any organisation's needs. Rachael will come to you to deliver an inspiring and informative workshop around any of these topics, and each event includes the chance to ask questions and purchase signed copies of her bestselling books.

Rachael can work with any group of any size, and has previously delivered workshops and talks to:

- primary schools

- secondary schools

- arts groups

- literature festivals 

- cafes and local businesses

- libraries

- Girl Guiding

- fairs and festivals

- charities

- book shops

- shopping centres

... and more!

Rachael has been writing and publishing independently since 2010, and after falling in love with the craft (but seeing how expensive and difficult publishing could get) she decided to train as a copy-editor and started her company, Curious Cat Books, to help authors just like her avoid making the same mistakes she did.

Rachael now has over 25 years experience in the industry, and is excited to share her top tips with your group.

Rachael will bring everything along with her, and will talk in-depth about your chosen topic, leaving time for a Q&A at the end. She will also then stay to offer signed copies of her books at a discounted price.


Rachael's starting fee is £49.00 for up to 2 hours (any group size - for a talk/discussion/presentation). She is happy to tailor her visit to suit your needs. For longer workshops, please contact Rachael for a quote, as she will need more information to be able to advise you.

For writers considering their options, Rachael recommends checking out her self-publishing guide (HERE) — she will happily explain and guide you through any of the subjects inside during one of her talks, if this is ideal.

Rachael's advice is no-nonsense, honest and based on her years of experience. She has worked with authors all over the world to write, edit, format, and design their books, before guiding them to see it on the shelves. She can offer free tools to: find the perfect book cover image; edit and proofread the text; lay out the interior; build an author website/blog.
