Rachel Abbott is the UK’s no.1 bestselling author on Amazon’s Kindle with over 2.8 million copies sold in under six years. In figures released by Amazon in August 2015, she was announced as the 14th bestselling author overall – published and self-published.
Her books have been reviewed in Good Housekeeping, Closer, and in 2016, Red magazine picked Kill Me Again as their best thriller of the summer, calling it ‘a properly addictive, leave-the-light-on thriller.’
Born and raised in Manchester, Rachel Abbott founded her own interactive media company in the 1980s, before selling it and retiring in 2005. She then moved to Italy where she worked on the renovation of a 15th century Italian monastery, and it was here that one day she found herself snowed in and decided to begin writing for pleasure. This novel became her debut novel Only The Innocent, which she went on to publish via Kindle Direct Publishing, topping their chart for 4 weeks.
She has since written The Back Road, Sleep Tight, Stranger Child , Kill Me Again, The Sixth Window and a novella, Nowhere Child. She splits her time between Alderney in the Channel Islands and Italy.
