The Undisputed Queen of
Australian Women's Fiction


Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world wide web. I’m guessing if you’ve found me it’s because you’ve either read one of my books or you’re a mad keen reader like me, looking for your next fiction fix. Either way, I hope you’ll make yourself at home and have a look around while you’re here – be sure to check out my books page for my backlist and latest releases. I mostly write life-lit (aka women’s fiction) and rural romance because I believe there’s enough depressing stuff happening in the world, that I like my books to be hopeful and fun. If you enjoy a good chat like me, well… I spend far too much time on Facebook and Instagram and love to meet readers, so come say Hi there too. I also run an online book club, for more details click here.

Happy reading,

Rachael Johns Writer

One question I OFTEN get asked at events is HOW do I become a writer? WHERE do I start? My answer, no matter WHAT genre you are writing - join the Romance Writers of Australia and if you can, attend their conference. I would not be where I am in my career today without this wonderful organisation. There's only days left to book your ticket to the annual conference at early bird prices. Best investment you can make in your writing journey!
