Rebecca Barrow, Bad Things Happen Here

Rebecca Barrow, Bad Things Happen Here

  1. My favourite film is what I believe to be the best noir-cartoon-comedy of all time, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
  2. I’m a water sign, like Luca in Bad Things Happen Here (she’s a cancer; I’m a scorpio.)
  3. I fell in love with Ava Gardner when I was fourteen (to do the same, watch her in The Killers (1946))
  4. Bad Things Happen Here is my first thriller, but not my first book—I’ve also published two contemporary novels, and a Riverdale horror spinoff, too.
  5. My dream is to adopt a bunch of old lady cats and give them a completely luxe life filled with indulgent snacks and a thousand soft surfaces for them to claim as their own.
  6. I started writing my first ever book when I was sixteen (and it was truly terrible, but it was a start!)
  7. Luca and I wear the same red lipstick: NARS Mysterious Red.
