Rebecca Netley

Rebecca Netley grew up as part of an eccentric family in a house full of books and music, and these things have fed her passions. Family and writing remain at the heart of Rebecca's life; she lives in Reading with her loved ones and an overenthusiastic dog, who gives her writing tips.

Rebecca is a writer of long and short fiction; her debut novel, The Whistling (Penguin, 2022), won the Exeter Novel Prize and was longlisted for the Michael Ondaatje Prize. The Whistling has been adapted for stage. It was followed by The Black Feathers which was published by Michael Joseph in 2023.
