Raised on a down home blend of Johnny Cash, Jack London, Sherlock Holmes, the Steelers, and all things small town, Rebecca feels blessed to have grown up in a close knit, fun loving and artistic family. Her mother, a voracious reader and scratch cook, and her father, an entrepreneur, English teacher and lover of literature, taught Rebecca and her brother to work hard, aim for the stars, and live life.
With music, books and laughter as constant companions, she grew up working, cooking and eating in the family's restaurant business. A certified book and hoagie junkie, Rebecca thrives on live music, mysteries and the outdoors. She's a cheddar enthusiast, lover of cats, teddy bears, hot coffee, cold beer, thunderstorms, the blast of a train's whistle, the change of seasons, country roads, woodpeckers, spoon rings, cool office supplies, and the Food Network.
She's a sucker for a happy ending, and strives to write the kind of stories she loves to read--those featuring authentic, edgy and vulnerable characters, smack dab in the middle of action that explodes from page one. Careers, past and present, include freelance writing, accounting, mother, problem solver, doer and head bottle washer.
