Self-professed geek, Rebecca Spear, is one of Windows Central's gaming editors with a focus on Xbox and PC gaming. When she isn't checking out the latest titles on Xbox Game Pass, PC, or Steam Deck; she can be found digital drawing with a Wacom tablet. She's written thousands of game guides, previews, interviews, features, and hardware reviews over the last few years. If you need information about anything gaming related, her articles can help you out. She also loves testing game accessories and any new tech on the market. Drawing tablets and drawing programs like Adobe Fresco and Photoshop are among her chief interests.
When away from electronics, she loves taking her corgi, Penny, out to the river to go swimming and is always up for a game of volleyball. Otherwise, you'll most often find her curled up with a fantasy or sci-fi novel as her cats purr on her lap. She also loves attending comic conventions while cosplaying as her favorite video game characters. Her house is filled with gaming collectibles and posters and she's always on the lookout for more.
