I have just doffed my rather long, awkward, and tipsy-turvy approach to this whole "author's bio" section for the completely unoriginal, unimaginative, and painfully orthodox method of short and concise lists about myself. Boring and predictable though it may be, I do believe that it will help you, the impatient and distanced reader, in your search to quickly learn a touch more about the person behind the poetry. So, without much of a further ado, the scraggly and entirely incomplete synopsis of Rebeccas Aura may begin...

Some other random tidbits: I'm about as left-winged as they come; I am, at times, a perfectly paralyzing perfectionist; I'm an atheist; I'm awkward in social situations; I loathe the telephone, detached hair, spiders, and dust bunnies, among many other things; I love writing by hand, especially using gel-based pens; I enjoy drooling over college guides, though I have only a very vague and wide idea about what direction of life I wish to pursue.
Now, one last note before I depart: All poetry published under my name is my own. Each and every one has been extracted slowly and painfully from the depths of my mind and my mind alone, so please respect both it and myself and do not steal any scrap of it. If, for whatever abstract reason you may have, you do wish to use some of my material, or if you simply wish to ask or comment about anything, please feel free to contact me. I often check my e-mail, so a response to whatever you send will be heading your way within a day or two. Also, each and every poem contains an Author's Note in it, so if you are at all curious about a poem, you may find out a little about it there.
Thank you for visiting my page, and I hope that you enjoy my poetry!
