Rachel Helen


Rachel Helen is the pen-name of Rachel Lopiccolo - author, primary school teacher and mum of two. 

She has a BA honours in History and a PGCE in primary education.


Having wanted to be a writer since childhood, Rachel had several articles about teaching published by TES and was subsequently commissioned by Schofield and Sims to write two educational books.  She also regularly produces resources linked to popular children's fiction for an online teaching resources website. 


She finally achieved her ambition of having a novel published in 2019 with 'The Curse of the Pendle Witch' and has since completed her Pendle Witch trilogy.


She is currently working on her series, Words of the Dead, inspired by folklore and ghost stories.


She has many more ideas for historial fiction stories which she looks forward to bringing to life from the chaos inside her head!
