Primarily a fantasy hound, Rebecca is an animal lover with a writing style that meanders between dystopian & urban. She lives by the seaside with her pragmatic other half & their cats in the lovely UK county of Yorkshire (where tea drinking is expected & dunking biscuits is mandatory). A big fan of social media, chances are you’ll catch her online during the day where she is more than happy to add readers & writers as friends.
Her first short story, Desecrated Bonds, is available online in ebook form. & now her first novel length piece & the 1st in the Indigo Skies series, Preying On Time, is also available to purchase in both ebook & paperback. Not to mention her latest release, Breaking Cadence, which has her writing two sequels simultaneously!
Her day job is friendlier than her plot lines might have you expect & her house is far less cluttered than her head, surprisingly. Occasionally she attempts to garden or clean, but is more often found with her face buried in new writing.

Unpublished writer of urban fantasy (hoping to get noticed) & my county's youngest lollipop lady. Fluorescent life's about reading, writing, 5 cats & 2 Westies.

What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Connecting instead of stalking celebrities.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I don't want anyone to follow me unless they find what I write and have to say is interesting to them.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Listen to the more experienced users and only add those that you want to hear from.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I've unfollowed a few because I realised they were only self-promoting & not connecting. I want to connect with people.
