Her debut novel, SINNERS AND THE SEA, received rave reviews. Publisher's Weekly declares, "Noah's unnamed wife is a powerful, memorable character." Rebecca explains how she came to write SINNERS AND THE SEA. "I didn't mean to write a novel about Noah's wife. But just a few pages into what I thought would be a short story I realized I didn't want to stop. A 500 year old man that everyone thinks is crazy, a host of vulgar sinners, a world on the verge of destruction.... For me, this material was irresistible."
