Rachel Bearn is a writer based in the Oxfordshire countryside. A prolific storyteller from a young age, Rachel has always been inspired by the nature and culture of the British isles, focusing her writing on rural landscapes and the tales of the people who live in them. As a keen knitter, Rachel also loves to explore the stories behind all things yarn, knitting and handmade. Her writing has been published on The Guardian, We Are Tearfund Webzine and her photography has appeared in Country Living Magazine UK. 

In 2018 Rachel developed MECFS, a chronic pain and fatigue condition, that significantly changed her life. She uses her experience to write about chronic illness and invisible disability as well as campaigning for greater awareness. 

Rachel studied an Undergraduate Diploma in Creative Writing at Oxford University and is currently studying an MA in Travel and Nature Writing at Bath Spa University. As well as freelance writing work, Rachel is writing her first romance novel about knitting, new beginnings and a whole lot of yarn.
