Rebecca Ellen Kurtz is the author of a riveting new novel, Sons of God.
She is a passionate amateur archaeologist and expert on historical mysteries. She has traveled extensively, studying both religious and non-religious primary texts. This research, along with her own frightening and powerful paranormal experiences, influenced her writing of a gripping, fast-paced, revealing novel.
Rebecca has always been sensitive to the spiritual realm and has experienced many supernatural events, some in the form of violent, physical assaults by demons. These experiences not only significantly shaped her belief in the living God but also add credibility to her debut novel. As a researcher already armed with knowledge of ancient religions and civilizations, she further immersed herself into the topic to deepen her understanding. Theories began to form; mysteries unraveled.
Rebecca earned her Master’s in Communication from Regent University in Virginia for film and television production. Primarily acting as a producer, she also wrote, directed, edited, and created visual effects for various student projects; four of her short films were distributed through Direct TV. After completing her Master’s, she wrote and produced 15 episodes for Reel Good Films, which currently air on the NRB and Credo Network.
Nearly a year ago, Rebecca created Ephesus LLC, which strives to bring forth original historical, educational, and redemptive films and novels. Ephesus strives to stir up cultural and theological discourse for spiritual, social, and political impact. Ephesus selects projects based on discovering and interpreting historical and theological mysteries, seeking out original and controversial story concepts that also raise social, political, and theological questions. The marketplace that is targeted consists of the religious, historical, and the supernatural.
Rebecca majored in history at Goshen College in Indiana. She then began teaching and lecturing, in particular on ancient religions, Old Testament history, and world mythology.
Rebecca, 33, is working on a series of sequel novels to Sons of God and recently finished writing two film scripts, 1636 and Aryan State.
She resides in Chesapeake, Virginia. For more information, please consult www.rebeccaellenkurtz.com and www.ephesusmedia.com
