Rebekah began creating fictional worlds as a child - it was practically a family hobby. When she realized she could pull on the guise of being a 'fantasy writer' and continue worldbuilding as a responsible adult, she leapt for the chance. The role of religion and government in fictional societies fascinates Rebekah. She also dabbles with linguistics and etymology, and uses her amateur knowledge of fashion history to create clothing that not only looks good but plays a role in her made-up worlds. With all this information to keep track of, it's a good thing she loves to outline!
Her fantasy novel, Catalyst, written for the 2012 round of National Novel Writing Month, took first place in the Oklahoma Writers' Federation, Inc. 2013 annual contest for unpublished science fiction/fantasy/horror novels.
She is also a Municipal Liaison for National Novel Writing Month, which spawns from her masochistic streak. It's evidently not enough to just write a 50,000 words in November.
When she's not writing, Rebekah manages to keep her husband, one healthy cat, one not-so-healthy cat (he's in chronic renal failure), and six chickens alive from day to day. Her dream is to be as self-sufficient as possible on her not-quite-a-quarter acre lot, while somehow still finding time to feed her anime and manga addiction.
Rebekah might subsist purely on tea and books. Or this rumor might be greatly exaggerated.
