Raised on a down home blend of Johnny Cash, Jack London, Sherlock Holmes, the Steelers, and all things small town, Rebecca feels blessed to have grown up in a close knit, fun loving and artistic family. Her mother, a voracious reader and scratch cook, and her father, an entrepreneur, English teacher and lover of literature, taught Rebecca and her brother to work hard, aim for the stars, and live life.

With music, books and laughter as constant companions, she grew up working, cooking and eating in the family’s restaurant business. A certified book and hoagie junkie, Rebecca thrives on live music, mysteries and the outdoors.

She’s a cheddar enthusiast, lover of cats, teddy bears, hot coffee, cold beer, thunderstorms, the blast of a train’s whistle, the change of seasons, country roads, woodpeckers, spoon rings, cool office supplies, and the Food Network.

Careers, past and present, include freelance writing, accounting, mother, problem solver, doer and head bottle washer.

The Keeper (Crossing Realms Book 1) by Rebecca E. Neely is a paranormal fiction book with romantic elements to it. The Keeper will appeal most to an adult audience that enjoys paranormal fiction with hints of romance. The story follows Nick Geary, clan leader of human guardians, and Libby Klink, an accountant who is scared of her own intuitions. Nick Geary has saved Libby Klink many times and has fallen in love with her - yet being a guardian means that the humans he comes into contact with are left with no memory of him; meaning his love, Libby Klink, has no idea who he is. That all changes when the Watchers send a transmission stating that Libby Klink is the only hope of defeating the Betrayers. Nick Geary and Libby Klink are forced to work together to destroy the Betrayers and save the day.

Nick Geary and Libby Klink embody such a tragic romance in that Nick is doomed to love Libby without her even knowing who he is. My favorite part of The Keeper is when the pair begins to work together and Libby begins to fall in love with Nick. The Keeper truly has an amazing story line that is both unique and intriguing. When I finished reading The Keeper, I was left feeling excited at the prospect of book two in the Crossing Realms series.
