Welcome to my page and thank you for taking an interest.
If anything inspires you to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
A little bit about me...
Rebecca is a self-confessed story hoarder. Not only is her bedroom filled with ‘soon-to-be-read’ books that keep disappearing underneath piles of more ‘soon-to-be-read’ books, but she’s also managed to find a career where she can collect stories all the time!
Writing for children began when she decided to jot down a few ideas for her three little darlings who demanded made up stories before bed... every night.
Rebecca loves to laugh and hates cold weather.
Her favourite thing about travelling the world (when that sort of caper is allowed) is to sample local foods she’s never heard of. That interest began at the age of 3, when her Mum caught her munching on a snail by the compost heap.
She hopes to engage children of all ages and abilities in the adventures of storytelling.
For those wanting to know a little more...
Rebecca's passion for writing began at an early age, but her diverse family and love of travel gave her an intense fascination with culture, leading to a career in anthropology.
What is anthropology?
Not the study of bugs – that’s entomology.
Not the study of bones – that’s archaeology.
Rebecca studies people, with a particular focus on culture. Much like storytelling, anthropology offers understandings of different perspectives by challenging conventional knowledge and revealing other world views.
Rebecca rediscovered a love of picture books when she had children of her own. She loves books that are fun and have different layers of meaning hidden within.
Aside from writing, Rebecca has also worked as an advisor in various sectors, such as assisting university students in China seeking to study overseas and designing culture curriculum content and policy.
She is passionate about bridging the gap in understanding Australia’s rich indigenous cultures. She recently returned to work as an anthropologist in the lush tropical surrounds of Cape York where she is busy discovering many incredible stories.
