She was reared back in her chair, knees crossed, arms folded negligently behind her.

I've heard of crossing your legs, but not of crossing your knees. But Google Ngrams has them both, with 'legs' used about 200 times for every single use of 'knees'.

I am disinclined to reply if the OP does not bother to observe the fundamental rules of written English. Every sentence begins with a capital letter. It is not optional. It makes your writing look bad if you don't do it.

When you say "she was reared back", it sounds like you are trying to use the verb "rear", which describes an activity and not a state. "Reared" does not mean "to the rear". Horses rear. I think you want "slump".

"She was slumped back in her chair, knees crossed, arms folded negligently behind her."

I am having trouble picturing her arms folded behind her, negligently or otherwise, especially when there is a chair back in the way.
