Rebecca Mascull is a busy novelist and mum, living by the sea with her partner and their daughter. She has written two novels for Hodder and Stoughton and is currently at work on her third. All of her books have historical settings and try to engage with unusual individuals who represent the hidden histories we are often not told by our history books. THE VISITORS (2014) tells the tale of a deaf-blind girl living on her father’s hop farm in late Victorian Kent, whilst the characters later become embroiled in the Boer War. The novel was nominated for the Edinburgh International Book Festival: First Book Award. SONG OF THE SEA MAID (2015) is the story of a female scientist breaking boundaries in 1750s Europe. Her third novel begins in Cleethorpes in the late Edwardian period.
