About the Author
Rebecca Emin lives in Oxfordshire, England. Her debut novel, ‘New Beginnings,’ was published by Grimoire Books in January 2012. In May 2012, Rebecca self-published her second novel, ‘When Dreams Come True’, which is also for older children.
Rebecca enjoys writing flash fiction and short stories and has had several flash fiction stories included in fundraising anthologies. ‘A Knowing Look and Other Stories’ is a collection of Rebecca’s short stories which was published in November 2011. 
Rebecca is also an author for Ether Books who publish short stories and essays to mobile devices via the Ether app.

Her Books
From the heat of the African plain to the chilled winter air in rural England, this book will take you on a journey via a collection of emotive short stories. 
Birth, death, and some of the challenges that arise in between are covered in this selection of fiction for adult readers.

Sam Hendry is not looking forward to starting at her new school. Things go from bad to worse as the day of truth arrives and all of her fears come true... and then some.
When Sam meets a different group of people who immediately accept her as a friend, she begins to feel more positive.
With her new friends and interests, will Sam finally feel able to face the bully who taunts her, and to summon up the courage to perform on stage?

Charlie is happiest when biking with Max and Toby, or watching films with Allie. But when Charlie reaches year nine, everything begins to change. As her friends develop new interests, Charlie's dreams become more frequent and vivid, and a family crisis tears her away from her friends. How will Charlie react when old family secrets are revealed? Will her life change completely as some of her dreams start to come true?

  1. Thank you so much for featuring me, I'm very excited about it! I'm just off to spread the link around. Thanks again x

  2. Fabulously versatile author.. thoroughly recommended reading.. Go check out her work.

  3. Thank you for sharing these sweet reads with us. These characters are a little younger than my current reading and sometimes you want to step back and read that sweetness and coming of age discovery. As I am seeing these three books they appear to be stand alone novels, is this the case? and if so to you expect to revisit any of these characters in the future?

    1. Hi Denise, thankyou for your interest. New Beginnings is a standalone novel but I may go back to the characters from When Dreams Come True and carry on with their story. The very reason I wrote When Dreams Come True was like you said - wishing I could step back in time to that age.

      A Knowing Look is a collection of short stories for adults.

  4. I would like to thank you for such a fantastic giveaway and i will make sure to add some of Rebecca Emin's books to my to-read list!
    As an aspiring author and writer, currently working on my first novel, i would like to ask ~ how did Rebecca cope with keeping positive and driven so as to see her work from words on paper right through to publication?

    Thanks. x

    1. Hi Lucinda, that is a wonderful question. Basically I write for the love of writing and because the stories are in me. That may sound a bit strange but really it was easy to keep positive as I was doing it for the love rather than for any other reason. I then found I loved the editing process as I was effectively being helped to improve my writing, which is something I am constantly striving to do.

      I hope this answers your question, and best of luck with your own writing.
