About Rachel Churcher

Rachel Churcher fell in love with space flight at the age of five, after watching the launch of the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. She went on to earn a Masters Degree in Science Fiction Studies, and spent many years working as a magazine writer and editor. Her UK-based friendship-centred dystopian Battle Ground Series has won two international book awards, and five-star reviews from readers aged 11 to 80. She’s always happy to talk to readers about SF, politics, writing, and the merits of various fictional starships.
