R.L. Stedman

Hi there! I’m Rachel Stedman. I live in Dunedin, New Zealand, and write tales of fantasy and magic. Here’s what people say about my books:

Rachel’s lively characters, lyrical prose, and fast-paced adventures transport readers to magical worlds.

My first book, A Necklace of Souls, won the Tessa Duder Award and Best First Book at the NZ Post Book Awards. I’ve been shortlisted for the Tom Fitzgibbon Award and the Sir Julius Vogel Awards.

If I’ve not got my nose in a book, I’m on Instagram or Twitter (@rlstedman) or at my local library.

Rachel has teaching resources available on her website.
