Rebekah Isert


Rebekah Isert (pronounced “eyes-hurt”) was born on a cold winter night in Canada. Choosing to become a writer rather than an optometrist, she has enjoyed many different hobbies over the years, including jiu-jitsu, where she has earned her blue belt; counted cross stitch and crochet, where she learned patience; and being a college student. She earned an Associates in Science from Utah Valley University, and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Brigham Young University, with a minor in Creative Writing. She also served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Arizona and New Mexico.

Rebekah is a world traveler. As of 2021, she has been to 25 countries and 5 continents, with a strong desire to visit all 7 continents, even though Antarctica is very…


Q: What is your genre?

A: My first love will always be fantasy. It’s where my brain goes 99% of the time. Every once in a while I’ll reach out and scoop into Science Fiction or Contemporary Fiction, but my primary concern with any story I write is that it’s a good story.

The Writing Peasant

Why “The Writing Peasant”? 

First and foremost: The word peasant makes me laugh. I don’t know why. And I write. Secondly, one of the things that I like about writing is I get to be a student. I’m constantly learning new ways of expressing myself, or structuring stories, or just things about the world and universe at large that I can sink deep into the fabric of my books. Some of the most glorious storytelling (in my opinion) is through folktales, because of their frankness, honestly, and lack of pretentiousness, while at the same time highlighting the goodness of humanity. I want to tell those stories.

In this blog, I’ll share bits and pieces of my writing journey, but also announcements about upcoming project and sales. I’ll try to update the blog about once a month (it’s in my planner!).
