Rae Lewis fell in love with stories of strong girls and fantastical adventures when she discovered Pippi Longstocking as a child. Ever since, it’s been her aspiration to pen epically bold heroines - and exile rude people to trees whenever possible.

Rae has lived in cities, towns and villages across seven counties including London, and earned her BA in American Studies at the University of Winchester. These days she lives in Plymouth, where she achieved her MA with Distinction in Creative Writing.

When not tucked away in her writer’s nook (formerly a wardrobe…no, really) Rae can be found watching crime dramas, eating too many biscuits, and plotting her next travels.

The Exiles is Rae’s debut novel. For upcoming releases, exclusives, and all things book related, you can subscribe to her newsletter at www.raelewisbooks.com and follow Rae on Instagram/Twitter via @raelewisauthor.
