Rachel Holdsworth

Rachel was born and brought up in Leeds but made a break for the capital at the dawn of the Millennium. She’s lived in Golders Green, Camden and Muswell Hill, and is now firmly camped in Hither Green. She is terrified by the size of her backlog of unread books, is on a mission to spread a love of parkin throughout the south (it’s a cake) and the way to her heart is a pint. Her favourite bits of London are Blackheath, the view from Hungerford Bridge, Sapporo in Catford and the National Theatre – although she still gets lost in it. You’ll find her furiously pounding the keyboard about booky stuff, comedy and anything that piques her delicate sensibilities.
