About Rebecca Hillary

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. My family always nurtured my love of literature and my birthdays were always full of notepads and stationery as well as endless mountains of books.

I was first published at about six years of age when an acquaintance of my mother’s arranged for a poem I had written to be published in a local newsletter. The newsletter only had a readership in a couple of villages, so it wasn’t a huge distribution, but it was certainly a start!

Since then I have never stopped writing, and have been participating in NaNoWriMo since 2007. I have yet to fail the challenge of feverishly writing until my arms fall off in an attempt to hit 50k by November 30th!

As you can imagine, my house is full of books – something my five children are greatly contributing to as they love books almost as much as me. DVDs are also popular. We have several archive boxes full of DVDs and it’s tremendous fun to find some random follow-ons simply by picking an actor in the film we last watched and picking a random film they also appear in from the wide¬†selection available. How else could you follow The Fisher King with Godzilla?
