About the Author

Rebekah L. Pierce is an avid playwright and author with her works focusing on contemporary women and their search for purpose and identity. She received her MA in English with a concentration in Literature from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002. In 2006, Mrs. Pierce placed as an alternate in the Virginia Commission of the Arts Playwriting Fellowship for her works Perfect and The Myth. Her work has appeared in the following Off-Broadway festivals: the Midtown International Theatre Festival, The Network One Act Festival, Strawberry One Act Festival, the DC Black Theatre Festival and the Fresh Fruit Festival. Her most recent non-fiction publication is the self-awareness resource book, Kryptonite Killed Superwoman: Trading in the Cape for an Authentic, Purpose-Driven Life. It features a collection of inspirational blogs and journaling activities designed to empower and encourage women to live and work in their purpose. Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders is her first full length mystery/suspense novel. Inspired by early 20th Century American and African American history, this debut novel gives a stark look into the commerce and race politics of one of America’s most historic neighborhoods, Jackson Ward, Richmond, VA. Soon to be released will be Pierce’s second mystery/suspense novel, Sex, Lies & Shoeboxes featuring an African American female protagonist and set in Stockton, CA in the mid-1990s.

Raised in California, but now residing in Richmond, Virginia by way of service to the U.S. Air Force (1993-1999), I have been writing and teaching English literature for over 22 years. I have always loved mystery novels which featured protagonists who had their own demons to fight as they saved the day, so to speak. My novel, Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders, is a blend of history and fiction. The plot is set during a very pivotal time in American history: 30 days before the infamous Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929 in the historic neighborhood of Jackson Ward in Richmond, Virginia. In 2014, I published my historic romance novel, The Secret Life of Lucy Bosman, which tells the story of a mulatto former slave woman who comes to Richmond, Virginia on the cusp of the Civil War to claim property left to her by her husband. I've also written and directed several award winning full-length and short plays several of which have been performed on Off-Broadway and Off Off Broadway. In 2013, I published my collection of short modern plays, On the Cusp of Humanity. In 2019, I released my memoir, I Love Me More. I share the traumatic events that taught me that love begins with self. Bell Blu is the first publication of my full-length plays. Bell is a poor working woman in rural Central Virginia who longs to leave her small town to find her own destiny, but her mother's tight rope and old-fashioned beliefs are in her way. My work focuses on the battles and victories of the human spirit. It is my hope that each person who reads any of my stories comes away with a deeper sense of self and understanding about the light that shines in all of us.
