Fifth generation in the Pacific Northwest, Rebecca Hess was raised on a farm in Matlock, WA, with three siblings. Her ancestors migrated to the area filing for a homestead in 1889. Although leaving home to explore life, her roots of rural living remain.
With husband Ron, they made their home on ten acres outside his hometown of Reno, NV. After raising a daughter, and the passing of parents, Rebecca is following her passion of writing historic novels about rural life, self-sufficiency, and family commitments.
Self-sufficiency has lead Rebecca to learning the traditional art of blacksmithing following in the footsteps of two of her great grandfathers; Grandpa Singleton, and Grandpa Peterson. An outdoor enthusiast, Rebecca and her husband enjoy prospecting, camping, and the simpler things in life.
