Rebecca Loving-Quarles is born in Saint Louis Mo and has been writing since 9th grade, while attending Beaumont High School. During this time, her classmates thought she was mute due to not talking and my African American Studies teacher told her to write her words on paper since Rebecca didn’t talk.

Rebecca currently resides in Shawnee, Kansas with her husband, Reagis. She is an independent author in the process of publishing her book series Running Away from God (RAFG) with Christian Faith Publishing. She also collaborates with other authors and does ghostwriting.

Besides being a writer, she is a craft enthusiast! She makes bouquets, chairs, ottomans and centerpieces! She also spending time with friends, traveling and plan weddings.  Above all, her passions or gifts and Rebecca considers her first love will always and forever be writing.
