Rebekah lives in sunny Queensland and has worked in the past as a graphic designer. She now does freelance work when her kids are looking the other way. An avid writer since she could scrawl in her dad’s expensive encyclopedias, she has progressed from horsey stories to tales of dark fantasy with lashings of romance and a sprinkling of horror.
Her vices include eating overpriced ice cream, over analyzing 80s action and horror movies and buying stationery she just doesn’t need.
The long-awaited sequel to Chaos Born takes us back into the Applecross, where Lora faces increasing threats to her survival and her chance at love.
Lora Blackgoat — mercenary and smuggler — has only just recovered from the last threat on her life and hasn’t even begun to sort out the mess of having both a nephilim warrior and a reborn hellspawn as potential lovers. Work should be a refuge, but a job finding missing persons puts her in the crosshairs of a violent gang and a merchant with a taste for blood sport.
Reluctantly, Lora turns to the two men in her life for help. Roman — the nephilim — professes to be her soul mate and turns to her when he feels the darkness of nephilim madness descending. But though Lora is drawn to Roman, it is Seth, ex-lover and reborn hellspawn, who Lora must ultimately ask to protect those she loves. Can she trust Seth to save Roman and her adoptive family, or will this be a fatal mistake?
Q) What inspired you to write this story?
Chaos Bound is book 2 in the Chronicles from the Applecross stories and a continuation of the misadventures of Lora Blackgoat, mercenary and smuggler, extraordinaire. I was originally inspired to write about Lora’s exploits after she came to me during a brainstorming session about another book and she wouldn’t leave me alone.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
Chaos Bound took around six months to write, edit and polish.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Travelling through new worlds and meeting new characters.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Probably the second edit is the hardest for me, when everything seems awful. Back pain after a writing session is also up there.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Bruce Campbell. So I could saunter around all day, giving everyone the thumbs up and quoting Evil Dead movie lines. When I do it as myself, I just get weird looks.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
A jar of black olives that has been there for a year.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
More gritty urban fantasy with some slap and tickle on the side and a flawed heroine with attitude.
