Writer interview: Rebekah L. Pierce

Rebekah Lynn Pierce is an extraordinary woman.  Originally from California she now resides in Richmond, VA with her husband of fourteen years and her two children, aged eleven and three. But she is not just a wife and mother; she is a veteran, a former college English teacher, professional developmental editor, motivational speaker and of course author. Rebekah writes everything from books to plays and films to life workbooks. She is an intelligent woman with three degrees under her belt: an Associates, Bachelors and Masters. She has been writing and teaching for more than thirteen years and likes her work to focus on contemporary women and their search  for purpose and identity. Rebekah has also written and directed several fully-length and short plays. And as if her life is not busy enough, she even has a little home-based shop called Buffy’s Goodies where she sells delicious self-baked goods! What a woman!

And as busy as this acomplished woman is, she was kind enough to take time out to do an interview with me.


1.What are you working on right now, and can you tell us a little something about it?

I just re-released my historical fiction novel, Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders. It’s a murder mystery set in the historic African American neighborhood, Jackson Ward (referred to in History books as “The Black Wall Street of America” in the early 20th Century) in Richmond, VA, 29 days before the infamous fall of the stock market crash – October 29, 1929. It features a rare character – an African American WWI veteran named Sy Sanford. He’s been hired by the Negro businessmen and women in the community to solve the murders of working class Negro women in the Ward. So, I am knee-deep in marketing this book to historical fiction readers, book clubs, bloggers, etc. I am also working on the completion of my new mystery novel series, Sex, Lies & Shoeboxes featuring the African American female protagonist, Bobbie Vale. This work is a traditional “gum-shoe” mystery novel set in the mid- 1990s in my hometown of Stockton, CA.  2. Can you tell us a little something about it?

My name is Rebekah Lynn Pierce, and I am a veteran, author, playwright, motivational speaker and former college English teacher. I have three degrees: an Associates, Bachelors and Masters. I’ve been married for 14 years and have two children: 11 and 3 (don’t ask!); we live in Richmond, VA, but I am originally from California. I love to read mysteries, the classics and other great works of fiction. Writing is a HUGE part of my life; it’s my greatest gift. I am a storyteller across genres meaning I write novels, plays, films, short stories, etc. It’s important to me that no matter what I write, it empowers and inspires the reader in some way to be the best they can be and to live their life on purpose. I believe that we all have a purpose and a calling on our lives; we just have to accept what that is and not compare it to others – not try to live someone else’s dreams.


Book Review: Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders

Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders is written by Rebekah L. Pierce.Set in the Negro neighbourhood Jackson Ward in 1929, the story follows alcoholic World War 1 veteran Sy Sanford as he strives to uncover the series of murders of poor working-class Negro women.Image

Rebekah has created some captivating characters and bought them to life through her fantastic words. I was gripped from the beginning and even though I was in the midst of another book when I started to read this one, found I couldn’t put it down because I was so eager to learn what happened next, and couldn’t wait for Sy to uncover the truth.  Mysteries are not really my thing, but I couldn’t put this down and think this book may have swayed me! I absolutely recommend this to you, you will not be disappointed!
