Author Bio Pic

I’m Rebecca Zettl, an independently published Australian author. I write across multiple genres, following a common thread of fascination for the best, worst and strangest of human nature. At the moment all of my published works are in the crime and mystery genres, but I’m planning to branch out into science fiction, fantasy and comedy in the future.

I’ve just released the first title in the Erika Lawson Series,  Exit Wounds. Hard headed, solitary and driven to a fault, Detective Erika Lawson has been protecting the Gold coast for years. In this series you’ll join her while she relentlessly chases the truth from white sandy beaches to glittering nightclubs, and from average families to notorious gangs.

  The Harding-Callow Mysteries are lighter hearted short stories following Alice, a journalist, and Donny, a detective, while they sometimes work together, and sometimes get in each others way, to solve local murders. If you’d like to read them, you should start out with You Can Run. Get your copy here: books2read.com/u/mBeGDO
I’m also working on an untitled sci-fi series with conspiracy elements. My research is taking me from the moons of Jupiter to the murky theories surrounding super soldiers. I’m really excited about this one. I’ll keep you posted.
I’ve loved to read for as long as I can remember, and devour titles from a range of genres including crime fiction, sci-fi, action adventure, fantasy and narrative non-fiction. Terry Pratchett, Matthew Reily, Camilla Lackberg and RD Wingfield are a few of my favourite authors. If you haven’t read their work, I highly recommend you check them out.
I wrote fiction for fun as a kid, but it took me a long time to consider actually publishing my work. Instead, after high school, I followed my love of science to study engineering. Now I work fixing what breaks at a manufacturing plant in Greater Brisbane, where I live with my husband.
I run on coffee. Coffee goes in, fiction comes out. That’s how it works. I also love dogs, thunderstorms and the sound of rain on the roof.
