Hi I’m Rebecca, a graphic designer and aspiring children’s author. I’m hoping to be the next Dr. Seuss, but will settle for a 5 star Amazon review from my mum as a starting point.Me, 2019
On this blog I will be writing about writing a children’s book (try saying that ten times), and documenting my experiences as I navigate the writing, illustrating and publishing process.
If you’d like to know a little more about who I am and what I do – as well as being a full-time graphic designer, I am also in training to become a counsellor. Although the design is a much needed creative outlet for me, I am keen to balance it with a career that I feel makes a real difference for the people around me. In terms of my interests, I love illustration, pottery painting, yoga, swimming and guinea pigs! A couple of interesting facts about me are that I am a twin (my twin sister is also a writer and writes at http://www.twincreatives.com), and I once spoke to David Guest in a traffic jam on the M25.
I currently have two picture books for which I am seeking representation (but also exploring the possibilities of self-publishing) and have multiple others in the pipeline. Also working on a Rainbow Magic meets Beast Quest chapter book for 8-12 year olds.
