Rebecca Wells is a California native turned (temporary) East Coast resident. She has held positions in subsidiary rights management and university press publishing, and has interned with Tikkun Magazine, Charlesbridge Publishing, and a top U.S.-based literary agency. For the moment, she makes her way as an independent bookseller, writer, and general enthusiast of the written word.

Rebecca holds an MFA in Writing for Children from Simmons College, and is currently at work on a novel involving blood curses, ancient forests, and characters (human and otherwise) who are not what they seem. When not writing, reading, or talking about writing or reading, Rebecca can be found blues dancing, drinking tea, singing along to musicals, or playing soccer. (Usually not all at once.) If she were a hobbit, she would undoubtedly be a Took.

Rebecca is represented by Rebecca Podos at the Rees Literary Agency.
