Books make our lives richer. Writers are truth tellers, future predictors and hand holders.

My name is Rachel Watts and I am a writer in Perth, Western Australia. I worked in newspapers as reporter, editor and social media manager for eleven years until recently going freelance. I am currently working on a novel and studying a Master’s Degree.

This site is where I tell stories loosely related to books, reading and other literary adventures.  I review books and will of course let you know when my own writing goes into print.

I buy books at local and independent brick and mortar retailers where I can. I also recommend Better World Books for their ethics and prices. I encourage you to check your secondhand bookshop or your local library. Libraries should be valued much more than they are. Free books! I also read many books in Kindle version. Here is a list of ways you can support authors even as you read their books for close to, if not actually, nothing.
