    Rachel Wells Biography
    Rachel Wells is a successful illustrator and author, probably best known for illustrating the series of "That's Not My..." books published by Usborne. 

    Rachel grew up in North Devon and has now moved back there with her family, having lived in London for a number of years working in marketing. A huge cat lover, Rachel believes in the magic of animals. She has always had cats as pets, ever since she was a young child, and she has always loved writing. Now she's thrilled to combine both passions and has written her first cat novel, Alfie the Doorstep Cat.
