Hi! I’m Rebekah, and I provide freelance professional writing services as R&R Writing Services.
Creating great written content as a genuine wordsmith with a wealth of skills & experience
My goal is to provide authentic writing services with engaging content that is relatable & easy to read.
I’m a well educated, homegrown Australian Mum, with a diverse background and vast range of life experiences. I was raised all around the Australian countryside, the oldest of 5 kids, and technically under the poverty line. My parents, amongst many other achievements, started a free Christian school, and many churches coupled with grassroots programs to help people in need, giving me lifelong insight into how people can help each other out when they’re really there for each other. I grew up just believing it was normal to come home to find someone had left a basket of food or an envelope of cash as thanks for Dad’s voluntary work or gifts to help our family out. This gave me an appreciation of the importance of working with others, giving and accepting help when needed.
While my spoken word skills leave something to be desired, I was always a natural with the written word and loved to devour books day and night. This is why education always came easily to me, and I devoured my studies in formal education and in family travels around Australia, homeschooling from time to time. This meant it was natural for me to pursue, and excel in, multiple degrees and post graduate studies to cover the range of fields that I was drawn to as I became an adult.
Unfortunately my dream of becoming a mother didn’t come so easily. I would become a foster mother first, and have a hand in several charities providing services for single Mums and families in need. I would then become a step Mum to two amazing boys, and finally become pregnant three times, although we sadly lost our middle child early in the pregnancy.
Throughout this time I advanced my career as a Chartered Accountant and tax agent, however what I really loved doing was providing writing services as part of my role. I loved writing handbooks, articles, blogs, cases to the ATO, advice to clients, and stories to sell. After many years in big city and medium tier firms, working as CFO, running a weekend bookstore, and chairing boards for a number of charities, I concurrently started my own small business tax agency and freelance writing services.

Even as a young child I would write stories for my siblings. My dream is to complete and publish science fiction/fantasy novels and to write a biopic about my less usual family life experiences.
Raised out in woop woop with an outdoor dunny and an ice-delivery cooled freezer, I’ve had my fair shake of Aussie life. Hubby’s a foreigner from across the ditch, but our half kiwi ankle biters ain’t half bad.
