Rebecca Henry won our competition for a YA novel with an urban feel judged by Patrice Lawrence.
Rebecca has been obsessed with words since she was young and is not ashamed of it. As a word nerd, she fills her spare time buried in books, writing random stuff, and learning new things that are nothing to do with essays and useless theories. Some of that spare time is also spent on YouTube and accidental procrastination. She has written many things which make her cringe and a few things which she is happy with, but is nonetheless always thinking and imagining. She has no pets because a horse will not fit comfortably in the back garden.
