This is the blog of Rachel Cotterill. I'm a freelance writer and photographer, computational linguistics PhD student, and someone who collects skills the way other people collect stamps - so far including dry-stone walling, taekwondo, sugarcraft, EFL teaching, rope-splicing, skiing & snowboarding, knitting & crochet, cooking, juggling, coppicing, and archery... the list keeps growing!
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'm currently studying Turkish and Spanish.
I've written three fantasy adventure novels (start with Watersmeet if you like thoughtful, scholarly characters and a little romance, or Rebellion if you prefer straight-up action) and one recipe book (Design Your Own Cookies).
Please check out my latest blog posts if you want to keep up-to-date with the latest goings on in my life & work, and maybe send me an email to introduce yourself.
I'm a PR-friendly blogger who reviews travel and food products, hotels and restaurants - all with a veggie focus. For more details, please take a look at my review & advertising policy before getting in touch.
