Publishing Director, Mantaray Press.


After studying at NIDA, (alum include luminaries Baz Luhrmann, Cate Blanchett and Sam Worthington ) Rachael embarked on a top career in feature film, including working on films such as Gladiator, Troy and the Harry Potter blockbusters in London.

A career spanning over twenty years and featuring ONLY big budget features, and  an award nomination – working around the globe was a dream come true.

But it was not enough.

Returning to study at Oxford University (UK) – Rachael specialised in Creative Writing and Screenwriting/Pitching which consolidated a desire to make her film background and literary studies fuse.

An ambitious plan to launch her own publishing company was born.

Hence, Mantaray Press,  inspired by the epic nature of film and literature, is here.
