Rebecca Blackhurst was born in Essex in 1972 but grew up in Bahrain and southern Spain. Possessing an incurable wanderlust, she travelled the globe for years before settling back in the UK to complete a degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences and PhD in Astrobiology.
Growing up on a diet of science fiction and fantasy, Rebecca scribbled down stories and ideas for years but only after moving to New Zealand, for a change of lifestyle, was she able to get her teeth into writing.
Rebecca published her first book, "The Wolves of Solomon," in 2010, an historical fantasy novel based on the fall of the Knights Templar. The sequel "Wolf" followed in 2011. Driven by her characters, she is currently working on a prequel in the series, "Blood and Brethren."
Having a passion for wolves, Rebecca has two German shepherds and can often be heard howling into the night with her pack.
