Rebecca Stanley is a Cambridge-based writer who has spent two decades working in university administration. She started her degree in literature when her first child started school and by the time she graduated, had a second child in tow. Number three came along ten years later. Rebecca has dallied with flash fiction and recently won second place in the Crimefest Flashbang competition, enjoying a prize weekend with crime authors, fans and some fabulous cocktails. Mostly she’s a long-haul writer, and her latest novel You never were (born to be drowned) is a multi-layered page turner about a young woman’s search for her real identity when her mother is put on trial for murder.
