Rebecca Burton | author

Rebecca Burton is the author of two books for young adults, Leaving Jetty Road and Beyond Evie. She lives between two houses in South Australia, both of which are within walking distance of the sea. She likes to spend as much of her time as possible writing, swimming, walking on the beach, growing native plants, listening to birdsong in her back garden and drinking endless cups of tea. She loves Adelaide, the colour red, broccoli and the music of Hank Williams.

Rebecca also blogs at http://twentyonewordsblog.wordpress.com.
