Rachel Abbott, born and raised in Manchester, founded her own
interactive media company in the 1980s, before selling it and retiring
in 2005. She then moved to Italy where she worked on the
renovation of a 15th century Italian monastery, and it was here that,
one day, she found herself snowed in and decided to begin writing
for pleasure. This became her debut novel Only The Innocent, which
she went on to publish via Kindle Direct Publishing, topping their
chart for 4 weeks.
