Born in Auckland, New Zealand Rashelle enjoyed a happy and privileged upbringing with her two older brothers and sister. She has recently spent an incredible 18 months in her homeland with her father whilst writing his captivating life story. Rashelle and her family moved to Australia Gold Coast when she was just four years of age but returned to New Zealand to finish her high school education. From a young age Rashelle had dreams of being a hairdresser and makeup artist, a dream realised when she moved to England and did her hairdressing apprenticeship under one of England most successful and celebrated hairdressers. She won many awards in Great Britain and Europe which led to her having a hair and beauty radio segment, guest ap-pearances on breakfast TV and further accolades. She returned to New Zealand where she began writing a hair and beauty column for a New Zealand newspaper and continued her successful career before returning to Australia. Writing has always been a passion for Rashelle and to be sharing her father story will be her greatest achievement to date.
