Faith Bleasdale grew up in Devon, studied History at Bristol University and then moved to London. After sampling a huge variety of jobs, she decided that she would put her passion for writing to good use. She has lived in London, Bristol, Brighton, and Singapore but moved home to Devon, which is where she grew up to have her son. Her son, who is the light of her life, has Down’s Syndrome and Autism so a big passion of Faith's is working for awareness and acceptance. She writes fiction under her own name and also Rachel Wells. As Rachel Wells she is the author of the Alfie The Doorstep Cat Series. She writes full time.
Faith Bleasdale overcomes her fear of sharks to try surfing lessons with a female champion and reports ‘I almost managed to stand up…’
Growing up in North Devon I was very used to the surfing culture, although I have to admit to being more of a surfing groupie than an actual surfer in my younger days.
