Rebecca Henry

Rebecca Henry won our competition for a YA novel with an urban feel judged by Patrice Lawrence.

Rebecca has been writing since she was nine years old, when she opted to write a story about her Action Man in order to get time on the computer. She is studying Creative Writing at the Open University, while working as a librarian in a secondary school. When not trying to be a stereotypical librarian, writing, or studying, she enjoys reading, drawing cartoons, playing the violin and training calisthenics alongside capoeira (a Brazilian martial art). She has no pets, but in an ideal world wouldn't mind a horse.
