Rebecca Freeman grew up on a farm surrounded by sheep, bushland and huge skies, which was as amazing and interesting as it sounds (she even had a pet kangaroo for a time). She then went to boarding school in the city, which was not at all as amazing and interesting as any of the stories promised it would be. Rebecca always wanted to be a writer, but she put it off for years, because procrastination is what she does best. Now that she has a partner, four small children, many pets and a garden to which to devote herself, she finally finds the time to write. Rebecca lives with her family on the south coast of Western Australia, and blogs almost-weekly at thisclimbingbean.wordpress.com.
Rebecca’s story “And Then It Rained” is included in Amok: An Anthology of Asia-Pacific Speculative Fiction.
