Rebecca is a mom of two boys (13 and 15 years old), has been married to her husband for over 16 years, and is currently living in Germany. She was actually born and raised in Germany but moved to the US after she met her husband in Scotland at a wedding. (That in itself is a super cool and crazy story.)
She is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and absolutely loves her Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ.
She is fluent in German and English and has challenged herself by writing her books not in her native tongue but in English instead.
Rebecca enjoys reading clean happy-ending stories, loves to watch chick flicks (especially her Christmas Hallmark movie collection), and is a big-time Harry Potter Fan. (She is not kidding on that one. Her house has plenty of decorations of said franchise.)
Her love for writing started early. Even as a child she enjoyed writing stories. Escaping reality as a teenager took place whenever she had a good book in her fingers, her own stories, or watched romantic movies. She has a vivid imagination and so it is easy for her to disappear into a different world. She avoids certain genres because of her imagination, but she is still grateful that she can picture things so vividly. She is definitely a hopeless romantic but likes it when the books she writes or reads (or movies she watches) have a bit of everything.
She writes Young Adult Fiction/ Christian Fantasy and Historical Fiction, but her readers will also find drama, heartbreak, romance, humor, suspense, lots of sarcasm, and sass (a must for her since she is fluent in both), inspirational thoughts and faith in her books.
It is important for her to address difficult topics people don’t like to talk about, because in her words: “Only when we speak about these issues can we make a change.”
Bullying, Racism, Sexual Harassment, Abuse, Drug, and Alcohol addictions are just some of the topics she tackles straight forward and without sugarcoating. She doesn’t believe in avoiding issues because they are uncomfortable. Her beliefs, views, and opinions on those issues are presented in her books the way she feels about it. Her characters are her voice. She calls it as she sees it.
