Rebecca Jaycox grew up in the tiny town of Berryman, which borders the Mark Twain National Forest and the Courtois River about 70 miles south of St. Louis. The beautiful landscape fed her imagination, and she began writing stories at age 10 and never stopped.
Always seeking adventure, Rebecca moved to France after she graduated college with a journalism degree to teach English at a French high school. Bitten by the travel bug, she has visited Italy, Greece, Austria, Spain, and finally made it to her bucket-list destination of Istanbul last summer. Rebecca now lives in New York City with her husband, Gregory.
She enjoys reading and writing fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk, and science fiction. Her YA fantasy debut novel “The Other Inheritance” was released in 2014.
When she’s not writing her next novel, Rebecca continues to contribute to the writing community by providing editing services to indie novelists. For more than five years, she’s helped aspiring writers develop their work and loves to find that diamond in the rough that just needs a little polishing so it shines.
