Rebecca Addison grew up in Wellington, New Zealand in a home where there were books in every room. She spent her childhood reading everything she could find and writing stories in the notebooks she bought with her pocket money. She wrote her first full length chapter book when she was seven, a comedy about a family of alligators, and hasn’t stopped writing since.
In 2010, Rebecca settled in the Blue Mountains with her husband and her two children. After a stint writing content for adult education, she tried her hand at children’s fiction, writing two junior fiction novels, ‘The Jemima Cusbert Series’ and one middle-grade novel.
Since then, Addison has self-published two contemporary romance novels, STILL WATERS (2015) and THE OHANA TREE (2016), both of which have sold well and have positive ratings on GoodReads. After a couple of years writing romance, she likes to think she’s found her niche with her latest book, a thriller set in Wellington and Sydney.
