Rebecca Jones-Howe is an emerging author of neo-noir fiction. She went to college with the intention of getting a degree in Journalism in 2006 but dropped out after realizing that four years in university was more of a financial sinkhole than the pathway to riches all her elders promised her it would be. She now works a soul-draining retail job and does her writing part-time.
After winning LitReactor’s first unofficial WAR writing competition in 2012, Rebecca released her first collection of dark and salacious short fiction, Vile Men, (Dark House Press) in 2015.
Her work spans various genres, including horror, crime, erotica, transgressive and (on the off-chance she feels like embracing cliches) romance. She has been published in PANK, Punchnel’s and Pulp Modern, as well as in the The New Black and Exigencies anthologies of neo-noir fiction.
Rebecca lives in Kamloops, British Columbia, with her husband and two children. She enjoys dishing politics, talking fashion, thrifting, donning obscure shades of lipstick and hate-reading V.C. Andrews novels.
She is currently putting the finishing touches on her debut novel and is hoping to feel like a legit author soon.
