Rebecca Kightlinger is a physician-author. She practiced obstetrics and gynecology for over twenty years, first in private practice in Pennsylvania and then on the clinical faculty of the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville, Virginia. As Director of Women's Health for Remote Area Medical volunteer corps, she collaborated with Guyana's Minister of Health, Amerindian tribal leaders, and local health care providers to bring cervical cancer screening and treatment to women in the most remote regions of Guyana.
She now writes fulltime. Her historical fiction series, The Bury Down Chronicles, follows a multi-generational family of women healers and seers in medieval Cornwall.
Rebecca and her husband live in Northwestern Pennsylvania with their three sweet dogs, three gorgeous cats, and three elegant Bantam hens. In her working hours, she writes Megge's continuing story and studies medieval medicine, Anglo-Saxon wortcraft, Greek mythology, and the history of Cornwall. In her free time, she swims, plays with her pets, and mows the lawn. Guilty pleasures? Gearharts chocolates, detective novels, and hashtag games.
