Rachel Numan Meet Kiwi author Rachel Numan

Rachel Numan lives on a dairy farm in the Waikato, with two tiny farmers (her boys, Jack and Oscar), one real farmer (her husband, Chris), and one pretend farm dog (who is a little bit scared of cows).

She is a trained veterinarian, but these days spends more time trying to find matching socks and drinking lukewarm coffee than she does fixing cows.

Tractor Dave is her debut book which is based on a little 1983 David Brown tractor she and her husband own.
