Tales of Tarya
Rachel Le Rossignol is a writer, editor, trainer, presenter and actor. Her first novel in the exciting fantasy triology, Harlequin’s Riddle, was published in June 2017 by Odyssey Books under the pen name of Rachel Nightingale.
With a passion for story telling and the theatre, it was natural that her first fantasy series would centre on both.
“My key fascination is the power that stories have in our lives, to engage, illuminate and transform.“
Rachel Nightingale was a highly imaginative child who used to pretend she was a gypsy wandering the woods on her way home from school. Once she realised creating stories gave her magical powers she decided to become a writer. Some years, and many diversions later, she is the author of Harlequin’s Riddle, published by Odyssey Books, and also, rather unexpectedly, an award winning playwright. Columbine’s Tale, the sequel to Harlequin, was recently released in September 2018. She is currently writing the final book of the Tales of Tarya trilogy – which by complete coincidence is about the power of creativity to shape the world – and desperately trying to ignore all the other stories clamouring for her attention.
Rachel lives in regional Victoria with a very bossy cat, her family, and the cutest dog in the world.
