Growing up on the Caribbean island of Trinidad, Rebecca Chatterpaul-Johnson’s childhood summers were spent outdoors with her younger brother, two cousins and a band of adventuresome friends, climbing trees, fishing, swimming, rafting on the river, and playing hide-and-seek in an abandoned sugar factory. These experiences and time spent as an adult in Monroeville, Alabama, provided the inspiration for her debut Middle Grade novel (manuscript), Summer Sweet Summer.
Rebecca is an avid reader and psychology major at Widener University, Pennsylvania, who graduated from high school in Trinidad, where she was never accused of over-studying or being an accomplished athlete. She does not quite understand the game of football, or why it is called “football”, she does however, understand cricket!
Rebecca now lives in Delaware, where she devotes her free time to writing her heart out and wishing she was the owner of King Mowgli, the wonder cat. She lives in hope that someday her sister will confer ownership of him to her. You can find Rebecca on Twitter @kbmikals.
