E. Rachael Hardcastle is an Amazon international no.1 bestselling author from Bradford, West Yorkshire in the UK. 

She's been writing since a young age, first published in a poetry collection through high school called, 'I Have A Dream' inspired by Martin Luther King. She released her debut novel in 2010 called 'The Soul Sanctuary' (out of print) under E. R. Hardcastle, then began writing under E. Rachael Hardcastle when she discovered her love of speculative fiction.

When she first hit #1 on the Amazon bestseller list with book one of her YA fantasy series, 'Finding Pandora', Rachael was overwhelmed. She absolutely loves her job and wouldn't trade the freedom and creative outlet it provides for anything. 


She has diplomas in Successful Self-Publishing and Journal Therapy, alongside a university Business Studies qualification and a variety of other writing-related achievements. She is also a trained copy-editor and publishing coach, and now runs Curious Cat Books, an indie publishing house designed to help overwhelmed debut authors.
