As of July 2015, the only information available in public domain about Rebecca Romney’s marriage is that her husband is a full-time professional writer, and they both live in Philadelphia. She has kept very low-key about her personal life.
She claims in an interview with Aaron S. Robertson that her husband once used her short story and wrote a complete novel based on it. She is an alumna of Brigham Young University with B.A. in linguistics and classical studies. She also completed minor in philosophy. Language is one of her primary interests, and she is fluent in English, Japanese and French. She also can read six languages, including Old English, Latin and Ancient Greek.
She joined Bauman Rare Books in 2007. In 2010, she became the manager of its Las Vegas Gallery. She found fame by appearing as a rare books expert on the hit TV show “Pawn Stars” on the History Channel.
She maintains a blog about rare and classic books on RebeccaRomney.com, entitled Aldine and named after Aldus Manutius. Aldus Manutius is famous for creating the Italic fount and popularizing the octavo format. He made classic books accessible, and she hopes her blog also makes rare and classic books more accessible. She also contributes to the Bauman Rare Books blog.
