    Just wondering if you are coming to Tasmania? And what is the next book you are going to write? I’ve read all your books and it’s hard to find an author who I can’t put the book down.

      Hi Tenille – thanks so much for your message. So glad you’re enjoying my books! I’d love to come to Tasmania and am currently trying to organise a trip with my author friend Fiona Palmer. We can’t seem to make contact with the right people though and are struggling to find libraries to hold events – do you have a local library contact who may be interested in hosting us!? x Rach!

  2. MOLLIE

    Hi Thanks for “The Greatest Gift”I enjoyed reading it so very much. Was wondering if the poem Polly read at Claire’s funeral..”It feels like winter is here to stay” was by Penelope Bruce as I can’t find her work anywhere. Loved this poem & would like to read more. Thanks again.

    • admin

      Hi Mollie – so glad you enjoyed GIFT and loved the poem. Penelope Bruce is actually a good friend of mine and she wrote the poem for the book. I’ll pass on your message – you’ll make her day. She hasn’t got anything published at this stage but is contemplating starting a blog. xx

  3. Amanda

    Hi Rachael I have just finished reading your wonderful book The Greatest Gift. I just wanted to say that the poem by Penelope Bruce was beautiful. I have just recently lost my dad and was only 30 and had a 4 year old and a six month old child when my mum passed away and have many days when I get sad and angry for not still having parents but this poem made me feel like life still goes on and has brightened my day once more. Thank you for your wonderful books I always get excited when you publish a new one and can’t wait to read it. Regards Amanda

      HI Amanda – so sorry I only just saw this comment. I’m so glad you enjoyed Penny’s poem – she went through her own significant loss recently too. My sympathy to you and your family. And I’m so glad you’re enjoying the books. x

  4. Teresa Joan Killeen

    Hi Rachel, I’ve only recently gained access to (and thoroughly enjoyed reading) a couple of your books (‘Man Drought’ and ‘Jilted’ – Unputdownable! I’m especially thrilled I can now go ahead and read the copy of ‘The road to Hope’ you signed at The Knowledge Centre in Gosnells, Western Australia in Nov 2017. Fantastic knowing these places exist – sent time in one or two (or know people who lived there. You’re making this ours, the issues are real and the dialogue believable and I love that!:-) Keep it up – I plan to ‘work’ my way through the list of books (book mad since I can remember). Thanks Rachael.

      Hi Theresa – thank you for your lovely message. So glad you’re enjoying the books. I’ll definitely do my best to keep it up. x Rach!

    Greatest Gift is wonderful, reading it at the moment. Using plenty of tissues as I go along. Hope Jasper finds happiness again.
