Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than to write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.
Rebecca is the author of HOW to FALL, a HOLT Medallion winner, as well as the Heart of the Adirondacks series, the Men of Gold Mountain series, and the Accidental Love series, coming soon.
