She and Anderson are currently working on book three of their original young adult fantasy series, "Crystal Doors."

Rebecca joins a panel of judges that includes science fiction and fantasy authors Kevin J. Anderson, Doug Beason, Gregory Benford, Algis Budrys, Orson Scott Card, Brian Herbert, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Eric Kotani, Anne McCaffrey, Larry Niven, Frederik Pohl, Jerry Pournelle, Tim Powers, Robert Sawyer, Robert Silverberg, KD Wentworth, Sean Williams and Dave Wolverton.
