Writing and personal site for Rebecca Kemp


Welcome to my website, which I’ve set-up as somewhere to catalogue my writing. So, if I’ve given you this address as a place to discover more, I hope you find what you’re looking for. If you’ve stumbled across me, I hope you enjoy the stuff you see. Either way, please contact me if you’d like to comment on anything or read more.

My latest book IN PURSUIT is now available on Amazon. Read more about In Pursuit and how to buy a copy.

I also write Twitterature, Twitter Fiction, Twitter Tales, Twiction - whatever you like to call it. Here are some of my stories told in a single Tweet:
