Rayya Deeb is a Virginia Tech Hokie, born in London, England and raised in Northern Virginia. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two daughters. Rayya has worked in television production and film development, but her true passion is writing. She has spent over a decade screenwriting, collaborating with some seriously incredible, world‐renowned directors, actors and top‐notch producers. Most recently she wrote her first novel, Seneca Rebel.
Rayya grew up on fresh Mediterranean food and an eclectic palette of music. 90’s hip‐hop will always hold a special place in her heart, and her parents’ LP collection that includes the Stones, Beatles and Dylan is one of her most valued possessions. She loves exploring the world, breaking bread with family and friends, and binge‐watching shows like “House of Cards” and “The Leftovers.” Rayya spends an absurd amount of time thinking about all things culinary, but considers it well worth it.
