Rebecca Roque is a born storyteller, which sounds nicer than “eloquent liar” but means essentially the same thing. She lives with an ever-changing number of cats, wandering spirits, and her small coven of ethically taxidermied rodents, which kindly wait until all the humans are asleep before going about their witchy business. When she isn’t annoying her neighbors by luring everything feathered, furred, and feral to her backyard, Rebecca enjoys true crime podcasts and hiking in places true crime podcasters would probably advise against. Till Human Voices Wake Us is her debut novel.
