Romance writer by day, 911 dispatcher by night and founder of the hugely popular blog Yarnagogo, which attracts over a hundred thousand readers a month, Rachael Herron has been knitting since she was five years old. Rachael lives in California but has a strong connection to New Zealand as her mother was born there - and she writes about this movingly in A LIFE IN STITCHES. Two of her novels, How to Knit a Love Song and How to Knit a Heart Back Home, were published in Australia as Eliza's Gift and Eliza's Song.
'Rachael Herron is a writer with an open heart. I feel it in her novels. In A Life in Stitches, I got a deeper look into that heart, and I love what I saw there. It's an honest, fascinating, warm-hug of a memoir.' - Amy Singer, Knitty.com. 'Even though I'm a lousy knitter with only a few crooked scarves to my name, I was captivated, delighted and touched by every chapter.' - Erin Bried, author of How to Sew a Button. 'Weaves together a life rich in family, romance, and enough electric blue yarn to knit her first sweater at age eleven... I'm inspired to be as bold and as generous as the knitters in her life.' - Catherine Friend, author of Sheepish.
