Rachael Johns

Rachael Johns is an English teacher by trade, a mum 24/7, a chronic arachnophobic, a Diet Coke addict, a podcast junkie and a writer the rest of the time. In 2016, The Patterson Girls was named General Fiction Book of the Year at the Australian Book Industry Awards. She was voted #13 in Booktopia’s Favourite Australian Author poll in 2018. Rachael lives in the Perth hills with her hyperactive husband, three mostly gorgeous heroes-in-training, two ginger cats, a cantankerous bird and a very badly behaved dog.
