Rebecca is a writer and artist living in Melbourne, Australia. She loves all things fantasy, especially medieval and steampunk. She has a diploma in writing and editing, and in 2011 she completed her Honours thesis in IT/Multimedia on eBook interaction methods for fantasy novels. Rebecca has just started her PhD at Monash University and is also working there as a tutor and research assistant.
Rebecca has a 1st Dan black belt in karate, though she had to give up training because of recurring injuries. She has a German Shepherd named Rex and an unhealthy obsession with chocolate and energy drinks, as well as a hatred of clowns. She is addicted to art supplies and is physically unable to walk past an art supply shop without spending at least $50, and also has more Nintendo games than she really needs.
When she isn’t writing, drawing or working, her activities include plotting world domination, avoiding sunlight, being an anti-social desk-hermit and writing biographies about herself in third person.
