Rebecca J. Allen

Middle grade and young adult author

Rebecca grew up with her nose stuck in magical stories like A Wrinkle in Time and The Hobbit, nervously flipping pages to find out whether the characters would be brave and resourceful enough to save the day. Now, she writes middle-grade stories that blend mystery and adventure and young adult stories with heroines much braver than she is. Her middle-grade mysteries Showtime Sabotage and Math Test Mischief were published under the pseudonym Verity Weaver by Jolly Fish Press.

Rebecca is also a freelance business writer. She has served as a judge for the CYBILS book awards and blogs about books and writing at She’s on Twitter and Instagram as @RebeccaJ_Allen.
