About Me

3/18/2020 8 Comments

I grew up in a family that dealt with the paranormal. 

My parents Charlie and Geri Wilhelm were the directors of the UFO Investigator’s League in Fairfield, Ohio. They also investigated ghost hauntings and Bigfoot sightings in addition to extraterrestrial cases. Growing up in this type of environment and having the passion for writing is what drove me at an early age to write stories dealing with the paranormal world. My fascination with the unknown is what led me to write the Beyond the Eyes trilogy, its companion, Tangled Roots, my paranormal fantasy, Ameerah, and Legends of Deceit, which is in the fantasy, paranormal genre, and the first book in a two-book series. 

I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

At the age of eight, my parents divorced, my mom remarried and moved my sister and me to Phoenix, Arizona. 

I had a difficult childhood, however, dealing with and talking about the paranormal world still remained a constant in my household.

When I was twenty, I moved to Prescott, Arizona and met my wonderful husband (Kevin) there. Before I moved to Prescott, I had a dream about Kevin and was told in my dream I’d meet him.

Weird, right?

You can imagine my surprise when he walked into my mom’s house. I was like, "That’s the dude who was in my dream!" Not only that, I knew without a doubt he was the one.

I was right. :)

A year and a half later, we got married and life with Kevin has been the best ever. 

In 2006 we moved to a small farming community in rural North Dakota. We lived there for damn near 14 years, which is the longest both of us have lived in one place our whole entire lives. 


In 2017, I had an awakening and several more after that (they keep happening). Maybe I'll write a post about it here one day but in a nutshell, we became minimalists, completely dismantled our lives, and unlearned the things that were taught to us. We sold our house and traveled in a homemade camper van for a while. We ended up in an amazing small coastal town in Oregon. We're currently renting a place, and we love it here. The southern coast of Oregon is breathtaking! We don't want to live anywhere else. lol. It's perfect here. For the first time in my life, I feel connected to the earth because we're now living in an environment where we're living close to it. If that make sense? We have everything here: the ocean, the mountains, the forest, the creeks, and the river. I'm seriously thinking about creating my own YouTube channel so I can share my world with you.

Just a thought I've been pondering over. 

I don’t have any kids. I can’t have them. I do have a four-legged kid . . . um, a cat named Church. He’s our entertainment and has a wonderful personality. He can be a pain-in-the-ass but we all can, right?

I’ve written seven books, but only six of them are published (the Beyond the Eyes trilogy, Tangled Roots, Ameerah, and Legends of Deceit). I've had more than a few people ask me if there will be another book in the trilogy. There will be, but it'll have to be a spin-off since trilogies are three books, unless I change it into a series, which is doable. There are still a lot of adventures that await Paige and the gang. I was also asked by fans of Ameerah if I was going to do a book two. I think I can kill two birds with one stone. Ameerah was in book two (Dark Spirits) and three (The Devil's Third) in my Beyond the Eyes trilogy. So when I write the spin-off, her story will tie into it. Ameerah is a standalone book, btw. You can read her story without ever having read the other books. In fact, if these books were made into a movie or TV series, Ameerah's story could be told first. Anyway, I do think fans of the trilogy are in for a treat with Tangled Roots and Ameerah. I think they'll enjoy it. :)

I'm an explorer and love adventure. I'm also a minimalist and vegetarian. 

I believe we weren't meant to just pay bills and die. 

Anyway, that’s about me for now. Enjoy the rest of my blog and books. I love to connect with people, so don’t be shy to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you. :)


  1. What an interesting background! I'm attempting to write a book ghosts (kind of), so I'm looking around and trying to get a feel for what's out there. I look forward to reading your work.

  2. Thank you, Allison. Good luck on your book. :)

  3. Hi, Rebekkah. It's been a few years since we chatted on Goodreads - about our 'spooky' upbringings. I just chanced upon your site. Nice layout. And really interesting bio.

  7. This is a lovely, personal About page Rebekkah. I enjoyed it and I'm pleased to meet you.
    I dream of living in the southwest again. Or of a very rural place... just one without snow. ;) Hugs.

  8. Thanks, Teagan. I don't ever want to live in the southwest again. LOL. I hope you get to, though, since that's your dream. :) (Hugs) back.
