Rebecca Donovan is an American novelist. Her books have a special appeal to twenty-somethings, a market category publishers call new adult.
Donovan, who had previously worked as an events planner, began as a self-published author, but in 2012, Penguin acquired the U.K. rights to her successful "Breathing" series. In 2013 she signed a contract with the Amazon.com imprint, Skyscape Publishing. According to the Boston Globe, to celebrate her publishing contract with Amazon, Donovan "took over" the Blithewold Mansion where she planned and held a party together with friends she had worked together with at Rafanelli Events.
