Rebecca lives in the Blue Mountains, where she loves to spend time in the National Park. She grew up in Wellington, New Zealand, in a beautiful old house above the sea, and has a special connection with Asia, especially Ubud, which she calls her second home.
In 2015, an online writing group read the first chapter of what would become her first novel, Still Waters. The reaction was so positive that she continued to write and share her work, eventually self-publishing Still Waters (2015), and then The Ohana Tree (2016).
She has also tried her hand at children’s and middle grade fiction, and there may or may not be a scary thriller hiding away in a bottom drawer. She is a true lover of words, from poetry to plays to novels, and this is reflected in her work.
Rebecca enjoys writing about human relationships, smart and capable female characters, and doesn’t shy away from exploring difficult stories. In her latest novel, she explores what happens when chronic pain and illness changes the way we see ourselves and others, and is inspired by her own health diagnosis.
