Rebecca was not so much born as assembled from potatoes, cat hair and sarcasm in Suffolk quite a few years ago. A school project of Rebecca's from the age of 6 reads, "When I grow up I want to write and draw books", clearly a precocious little brat but still, if nothing else it proves that when she's made a decision she really can't be bothered to change it. After a 'brief' detour from this career plan involving wanting to be Stephen Fry, a degree in philosophy and a dull office job, she finally got round to doing the whole book thing .
Since then she has become an award-winning (you won’t have heard of the award but come on, that sounds good, right?)and bestselling author of over 30 books for children. These include Just Because, a book about her daughter who had severe special needs and her ongoing series Owl Diaries which has sold 6 million copies worldwide. Her new YA novel, 'Pretty Funny' is due out in March 2020. (Published by Penguin, like actual Penguin. Which is dream-come-true awesome) And her mum really likes it.
When she's not story-making she can be found reading (everyone puts that as a hobby but really, I mean who doesn’t read? Even if its just the TV guide?), loudly venting her issues on the drums, painting pictures only she appreciates, at the movies (again, everyone, right?), podcasting or just hanging out with her two sons, Benjy and Toby, her permanently frantic dog Frida and sarcastic cat Bernard.
