Rebecca Weller could always find adventure for her active imagination growing up in southern Ontario. To keep herself occupied, she spent hours conjuring characters and universes. At some point, she realized she could bring these characters to life by placing them on the page. She used her imagination to entertain her brother, parents, and friends when she was younger, and later her husband and two children. Rebecca has always enjoyed altering the mundane world we live in to include a fantastical element, and Hleo dives extensively into this subject. Rebecca's debut book, Hleo, was written with great care and attention to detail.
