Rebecca Yarros Disability
Author Rebecca Yarros when she wrote Fourth Wing‘s leading character Violet Sorrengail, added a trait on the character that she goes through every day herself. Rebecca has a condition or a disability called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome which she was diagnosed with in 2020.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of inherited disorders that affect your connective tissues — primarily your skin, joints and blood vessel walls.”
“People who have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome usually have overly flexible joints and stretchy, fragile skin. This can become a problem if you have a wound that requires stitches because the skin often isn’t strong enough to hold them,” the Mayo Clinic added.
Violet is always proving to her doubters that she is not someone to be trifled with and that she has what it takes to survive. She is consistently underestimated by everyone she meets, even her own mother and purported best friend. Yarros exhibits beautiful empathy and easy expertise in handling the additional challenges Violet faces as a result of her condition.
How Much Is Rebecca Yarros Net Worth?
The exact net worth of Rebecca Yarros is yet to be confirmed but we estimate it to be above $1.5 million in 2023.
According to the New York Times, she has sold more than two million copies of Fourth Wing since its release in May 2023. It has been on The New York Times’s hardcover fiction best-seller list for more than six months — with three months at No. 1. More than 600,000 copies were sold in the UK and the Commonwealth after it became popular in Britain, Australia, and South Africa. Translation rights have since been sold in almost 30 languages.
By writing romances and frequently referencing her experiences as a military wife, Rebecca developed a successful career and a devoted fan base. She took up writing poetry and fiction early and wrote a novel for a high school English project. She never graduated college because of her marriage.
She later worked on her college degree in history and graduated when she was 29 years of age. She started writing her own novel instead of reading others.
She bought “Publishing for Dummies” in 2011 to help her figure out what to do next after writing her first book, an urban fantasy because she had so little experience with the publishing industry. Although no publishers made an offer, she signed with an agent. She chose to write about a young lady from a military household anyway, unfazed.
The outcome was Full Measures, her debut film, a romantic drama about a lady whose father is murdered in Afghanistan. She gave it to Entangled, and in 2014 it was released. It was the beginning of a fruitful career. After that, Rebecca published two novels annually at a dizzying rate. But her sales were static, and this often demoralized her.
Rebecca went to Cheyenne Mountain High School and graduated in 1999. She studied history at Troy University and graduated in 2010.

Rebecca Yarros Spouse
Rebecca Yarros is married to her husband/spouse Jason Yarros whom she met when she was in college. At the time, she was a student at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, and he was a young private in the Army, and their path crossed at a karaoke bar one night.
Jason and Rebecca married in May 2002. On their most recent anniversary, Rebecca wrote, “Twenty-one years of marriage. Six kids. Five deployments. Twenty books. Nine houses. Only Four duty stations. (Lucked out on that one, eh?) There is no one I would rather experience life with.”
Rebecca concluded the post, “I’m so wildly in love with you, so proud to be your wife. You are my north star, my constant, my best friend, my home, and my heart. You are my shelter when the world goes topsy-turvy, the steady heartbeat that magically slows my own, and my biggest cheerleader. You’re the strongest man I know, and the gentlest, too. For damn sure, you’re the funniest and best father. You’re the reason I can’t seem to stop writing about pilots. Quite simply, you’re everything, and I’ll forever be yours. Our marriage is old enough to drink, love!.”
On their 10th anniversary, Rebecca and her husband renewed their vows on a sailboat off the shores of Capri. She added, “Without knowing it, we both had an almost identical line in our vows. It was true the day I married him, ten years later, and today. There’s one constant, in our life: us.”
Jason was deployed five times as an Apache helicopter pilot, including four trips to combat zones in Afghanistan and Iraq. Rebecca started having insomnia in 2003 when Jason was hurt by an antitank land mine in Iraq. She read romance novels to pass the time in the middle of the night. After a few years, during Jason’s third deployment, she made the decision to write a novel instead of merely reading one.
Jason has retired from his job after 22 years of service. He looked after the household when Rebecca was rigorously writing the “Fourth Wing” working 12 to 14 hours.
