Rachael Mortimer

Rachael is a copy-editor and proofreader living in Wiltshire, UK. She has been editing and proofreading since 2015, and she trained with the Publishing Training Centre and the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.

In her free time, she enjoys reading speculative fiction and watching fantasy and science fiction programmes and films. Her favourites include The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Witcher, The Umbrella Academy, and The Mandalorian.

If Rachael were stranded on a desert island, the two fantasy and/or science fiction novels she would want with her are the All Souls series by Deborah Harkness for the compelling characters and blend of fantasy, reality, and history, and The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski, which was the book that introduced her to the fascinating world of The Witcher.
