A life-long Iowan, Rebekka Boyer Bishop finds inspiration in the fields and hills around her home.

She has been writing, more or less, since grade school, where she first penned the epic ‘And the Days Were Dark as Night’ (in crayon, no less) a riveting story about the Pilgrims and the Mayflower, having written numerous other short stories and several novels.
