Rachel Ingalls grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has lived in London since 1965 and is the author of several novels and short-story collections published in both the United States and United Kingdom.
"Ingalls is one of the greatest short-story writers we have. She is the real thing." --The Times (London) "Ingalls combines gothic horror themes with an unadorned style . . . Her vision evokes a world where psychosis and extreme violence stalk the American dream." --Time Out London
