About the Author

She wrote her first book aged nineteen and since then has been runner up in the Myslexia novel writing competition and the Yeovil Literary Prize 2012. Trained in psychology and education, and having researched magical thinking in adults for her MSc, Rebecca met some really interesting people in some very odd circumstances, which she could no longer resist writing down.
