Rebecca Whitney completed a BA in Creative Arts at Nottingham Trent University, and found much of her art and performance work inspired by the written word. Her other love is film, and on graduating she moved to London where she worked in production, moving up from tea girl to producer and executive producer on music videos and commercials. After returning to Sussex where she’d grown up, her passion for literature was rekindled, and in order to discover if she had a book in her, she completed the Creative Writing Certificate at Sussex University. It was on this course that The Liar’s Chair germinated.
The Liar’s Chair was published by Mantle/Pan Macmillan in January 2015. Rebecca is currently working on her second psychological thriller, a standalone book about new motherhood and paranoia. She teaches for Guardian Masterclasses and the Creative Writing Programme in Brighton, as well as writing short stories, plus features for newspapers and magazines.
