Rebecca Inch-Partridge wrote her first novel in 3rd grade, Saver Rebecca Meets Captain Kirk. She grew up wanting to save the world and wanting to be writer. Then life happened. She went to work on an ambulance as an EMT, got married and had a family. She went back to school for her bachelor’s degree when her son entered middle school. Rebecca then served as a service coordinator at Alta California Regional Center for several years.
Then she almost died from stage four endometriosis and that changed everything. Writing was no longer just something to be done in her spare time. It became a way of life. She discovered that she loved meeting with other authors at writer’s groups, conferences, and conventions. She is now a frequent panelist for area Science Fiction conventions such as BayCon and LosCon. Her experiences at these events served as the inspiration for her story “Nontact,” which will appear in Nova Science Fiction Magazine.
Giving and getting literary critiques has always energized and inspired her. Now she works as a freelance editor who specializes in speculative fiction, mysteries, and memoirs. She loves helping authors form diamonds from lumps of coal. She lives in Auburn California where she leads several critique groups for Gold Country Writers. She is also a member of the Foothills Storytellers Guild and co hosts Open Mic for the Spoken Word each month.
She is a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, California Writers Club-Sacramento Chapter, Northern California Publishers and Authors, Gold Country Writers, The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society, and Broad Universe.
