Rebecca Rowland grew up in Western Massachusetts (USA) but spent most of her early adult life in the Boston area. She travels often and every [real] location she includes in her stories is a place she’s lived or visited.
Rebecca is a best-selling editor of seven horror anthologies, including 2023’s American Cannibal, a winner of a Godless 666 Horror Fiction Award, and an Active member of the Horror Writers Association. Her speculative fiction, critical essays, and book reviews regularly appear in a variety of online and print venues.
The former acquisitions and anthology editor at AM Ink Publishing, Rebecca manages the small, independent publishing house Maenad Press. She accrued graduate degrees in English, Education, and Information Science and miraculously managed to pay off her student loans before retirement and/or death. In her spare time, she pets her cats, eats cheese, and drinks vodka, though not necessarily in that order.
A firm believer in what goes around, comes around, Rebecca strives to treat the authors in her anthologies with the respect and honor they deserve. Her narrative models are Chuck Palahniuk, Joyce Carol Oates, Tom Perrotta, and A.M. Homes
