Bio: With a lifelong love of works of fantasy (her first cats were named Pippin and Merry) and a creative bent to her nature, it seemed so natural that Rebecca Simkin would eventually want to write her own novels in the genre.
Rebecca has written several novels to date, and will be publishing them in 2016/17. Currently Rebecca is posting chapters every week of her fantasy, Unsheathed, on Wattpad.com. Her novel Ungloved is also available there in a complete draft form.
In addition to her writing, Rebecca works as a non-profit sector fundraiser, planning galas and other special events, coordinating volunteers, writing press releases, direct mail letters and funding proposals.
She volunteers on the administration of the Sunburst Awards for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic where she is currently their Chair.
Craft: Writer, Commercial Writer, Short Fiction Writer
Genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction, General Fiction
Memberships: Currently, Rebecca is a member of the Bloor West Writers group which meets weekly to review and support each other in their writing endeavours.
