Rebecca S. Buck has lived in Nottingham, England most of her life. She was accepted by the University of Oxford to read History, but soon found that something inside her rebelled against such a rarified academic environment and left to return to her hometown. She graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2004 with a degree in English Studies. She hopes to return to study at postgraduate level in the near future, with a specific interest in literature and culture. She is fascinated by this relationship, especially in a historical context, and the importance of fiction for representing the human experience. This is partly what inspires her to write. She also finds writing an appropriate outlet for an over-active imagination. Having spent much of her time since 2005 in Slovenia, Rebecca is now living in England once again, and working fervently on her next book.
