Neo-noir author Rebecca Jones-Howe

Rebecca Jones-Howe

I write neo-noir fiction. My first collection of short fiction, Vile Men, was released in 2015. I’m currently seeking representation for my first novel. I write exclusive stories on Patreon. I also write reviews, writing advice and general musings on my blog. My work is sometimes gothic, sometimes erotic, sometimes horrific, sometimes criminal, but always minimalist, feminist and raw.

Vile Men

Vile Men is a collection of fourteen short stories that are transgressive in nature, filled with heart and emotion, leaving you sweaty and spent, your heart pounding in your chest. Stolen moments on the subway, fear of intimacy, sexual perversion and dark fears come home to roost all unite in a powerful mixture of literary fiction, contemporary fairy tales, and late night confessions. Shocking and yet touching, unnerving and yet brutally honest, Rebecca Jones-Howe is an emerging author that you’ll want to keep an eye on.
