Rebecca enjoys writing historical fantasy (so far, an enjoyable but expensive hobby).

Readers can download Rebecca’s first historical fantasy at (pen name Rebecca East) for $.99 at

It’s a tale of a stranded time traveler in Pompeii. One reviewer called it “Cinderella in Pompeii”; Rebecca prefers to think of it as “Upstairs/ Downstairs in Ancient Rome”. See for examples of ancient art that inspired the story.

She plans to change the title and cover, revise based on reader feedback, and reissue her novel within a few years. For now, she hopes this story may inspire reader interest for her next book.

Current work in progress is historical fantasy set in 13th century sout

Quotes by Rebecca East  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Touch can have two meanings: it can be an intimate gesture between equals, a way of saying: I care for you. But between people who are unequal, there’s an asymmetry: the powerful may touch the weak — a pat on the back, for example; but the weak may not lay hands on the powerful. His touch probably meant nothing. Any touch I might receive from a family member would be difficult to interpret. It could be a gesture of affection, a bit of condescension, or worst of all, a sexual overture. Or perhaps it might be a confusing mixture of all of these.”
Rebecca East, A.D. 62: Pompeii
