R. Lennard


Rebecca Lennard is the author of the young adult fantasy book series Lissae.

Rebecca enjoys learning about ancient civilisations, cosplaying and endless cups of tea. She is an avid fantasy and sci-fi reader, and in her spare time, she works as a librarian.

Residing on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, Rebecca enjoys the natural beauty of both the beach and the bush, finding hidden writing spots as a makeshift office.

Having completed a Bachelor's in Librarianship and Corporate Information Studies, Rebecca found that she was longing to go back to writing fiction, and finally completed her first novel at the end of her degree.

In 2018, Rebecca's first short story will be published in the 3rd Australian Pen anthology, The Evil Inside Us.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Turning 'what if' into an entire Realm - there are no limits to imagination, and by exploring the 'what ifs' I can share new worlds, and new ways of doing things.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
A horrible draft of Ronah that was called 'The Travellers Curse.' I gave it to my sister to read as she boarded the plane.

Not sure why, but she has a bit of a phoiba about air travel now.
