Rebecca Harrison

Rebecca Harrison sneezes like Donald Duck and her best friend is a dog who can count. Her first book, The White Horse, a gothic folk horror that’s Jane Eyre meets The Wicker Man, is out now on Spooky House Press.

What inspired you to write ‘Landi Berries’ (Issue 4)?

All my stories about magical animal companions were inspired by Lily, my cocker spaniel. She was the most marvellous girl: howler at roses, trader of pebbles, trot of triumph, lettuce thief, newspaper slayer, and dog who could count. She’s gone home to her fields now. But one day, I’ll meet her there.

Could you give us an insight into your writing process?

Lily was my writing buddy. I always wrote with her by my side.

What do you consider to be the most enjoyable or important aspect of science fiction or fantasy, and why?

Being able to transpose emotions into fantastical worlds.
