Rebecca loves presenting workshops for children, teens, and adults and has a range of workshops, talks, and presentations on writing, publishing, and literacy.

Biography

Rebecca Laffar-Smith always yearned to explore the wonders of this world and beyond. She grew up in the magic of wonder and darkness that was 80’s science fiction and fantasy. She devoured stories of knights and castles, angels and fairies, demons and dragons, aliens, space ships, and time travel. When she’s not lost in Camelot, Gallifrey, Atlantis, Narnia, or any number of fictional realities, she’s writing within her own.

Rebecca gave up a successful career writing about the non-fiction world in favour of fantastical creatures and the fanciful things she could create and immortalise in fiction. Now she writes full-time while homeschooling her Autistic son, raising her creative daughter, and offering coaching, mentorship, and events within her writing community. She dreams of someday running a writer’s retreat on the outskirts of Perth and writing her stories in a detached, hexagonal room with dozen’s of bookshelves and plenty of natural light.
