Chatting With Sherri welcomes WOTF Published Finalist writer; Rebecca Treasure!
Rebecca grew up reading science fiction and fantasy in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. After grad school and two children, she began writing fiction. Rebecca has lived many places, including the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and Tokyo, Japan. She currently resides in Texas Hill Country with her husband, where she juggles two children, two corgis, a violin studio, and writing. She only drops the children occasionally.
Rebecca discovered Writers of the Future shortly after she began writing fiction. She has entered every quarter since, making lifelong friends as a result. Rebecca’s short fiction has been published by or is forthcoming from WordFire Press, Air and Nothingness Press, Flame Tree Publishing, The Dread Machine, and others. She is an associate editor at Apex Book Company and Magazine.
“Tsuu, Tsuu, Kasva Suuremasse” came about, as many of Rebecca’s stories have, from a synthesis of ideas. Research for her sixth novel, a historical fantasy about Napoleonic magic users, combined with a fascination with the idea of animal magic and beloved memories of an “adopted” grandmother from her childhood. The real Emily lived in a cozy apartment across from Rebecca’s family and collected dolls.
Rebecca was a Published Finalist in the Writers of the Future contest with her story, "Tsuu, Tsuu, Kasva Suuremasse," and her story is published in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 38.
