A little bit about me...

Rebecca's passion for writing began at an early age, but her diverse family and love of travel gave her an intense fascination with people and culture, leading to a career in anthropology.

She began writing for children when she decided that she might save some time if she jotted down a few story ideas for her three little cherubs who demanded made up bedtime stories... every night.

When not tripping around Cape York working as a researcher, you might find Rebecca looking for treasure on the beach or playing a game of soccer with her family. 

Rebecca loves to write in rhyme and make readers smile. She hopes to engage children of all ages and abilities in the adventures of storytelling.

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 looking deeply into other world views. It is an important subject because it helps us to understand where we came from, who we are today, and what may happen to us in the future.

Rebecca has come to specialise in land rights and native title anthropology, working mostly within Australia. She rediscovered a love of picture books when she had children of her own and particularly loves books that are fun and have different layers of meaning hidden within. She is passionate about bridging the gap in understanding Australia’s rich indigenous cultures and our shared history. She currently works as an anthropologist in the lush tropical surrounds of Cape York where she is busy recording many incredible stories.
