Hello you. Rachel Connor here.

(All this stuff was gonna go on my About Me page, but it’s bit waffly so I thought ‘nah, mate’ and left  it here.)

Writing stuff what I’ve done

My first big writing gig was in Vancouver, Canada as junior writer (and eventually head writer) on seasons five and six of Cartoon Network’s Ed Edd n Eddy. I wrote many of the initial premises (the idea ‘nuggets’ summarising what an episode was about) outlines and scripts, oversaw and edited the work of my fellow writers and liaised with the director and storyboard team.

The only episode I wrote that I actually like is ‘The Eds are Coming, The Eds are Coming’, a half-hour Cartoon Network block special themed around aliens and the madness that ensues among the denizens of the cul-de-sac. I eventually also co-wrote the feature length movie Ed Edd n Eddy’s Big Picture Show.

Returning to merry old England, I took to writing content for MoneyAware, blog of StepChange Debt Charity. I write articles on how to be fun and thrifty as well as put people on the way to getting expert help with their financial situation.

Getting back into the world of cartoons and comics, I wrote several Regular Show backup comics for Boom! Studios (‘Sugartown’, ‘Grabbed by the Ghostlies’) as well as three Regular Show original graphic novels: ‘Hydration’, ‘Noir Means Noir, Buddy‘ and ‘A Clash of Consoles‘ have been published since. Those last two graphic novels were co-written by my life-companion Robert Luckett. All are available to buy on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. ‘Hydration’ made it onto the Entertainment Weekly Top Ten Indie Graphic Novel list for September 2014.

In 2014 I finished writing the first draft of my debut YA fantasy novel with creative input from my long-time friend Kay Ediger. This is the first in a series of novels and is currently being queried with literary agents.

Rob and I live in Leeds under the servitude of our overlord pet cat, Ramona.

    1. Hi!

      Oh my goodness, you’re so lovely! Thank you so much for your kind words. It really means a lot to me. I’ll certainly pass on a hug to Ramona. She turned 12 yesterday, spritely as ever though. I got her a laser pen toy as a present, and I must admit it feels more like a present to me, watching her wheel around the place after it, haha!

      Hugs to you too 😀 xx
