My name is Rebecca.

I was born in Miami, grew up near Disney World, and lived in New York City for 5 years before returning to my roots.

Although I got used to pre-war apartments with tiny bathrooms in Brooklyn, my current home resembles a summer camp that’s somehow nestled downtown underneath an oak tree older than any of us.

During the day, I work from home helping companies use their words wisely by editing and writing. I’m also mama to Riyah, a preciously needy husky who cries when she’s left alone in the next room, and in love with the guy I share her with.

A few years ago, I stopped writing because I lost the bravery to share the things I hold close to the chest.

Here’s where I practice courage again.

We should probably talk.
