I am Rachel Ragg, a freelance features writer specialising in parenting, human interest and lifestyle. My writing career began with a weekly column for the Big Issue in Scotland, where I covered most subjects from killer bird-baths to blow-up bras. Since then, my work has been published in numerous newspapers and magazines (The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, The Daily Mail /Femail, The Ecologist, Junior, Early Years among others).
After my first child was born nine years ago, I started writing for Junior magazine (so having children was a good career move after all). When my own children were younger, I could write features about them – but now that they are at school, my sheer existence is quite embarrassing enough for them, so I now save the more personal anecdotes for my blog.
I hope you enjoy it.
