Born in Great Falls, Montana to a military family, Rebecca spent her life moving throughout the country; finally landing in the South Chicago area. This is where her family roots continue to reside. She went to High School in Huntley, Illinois and she often talks about how that small town attitude framed her values. Shortly after high school, she moved to Houston, Texas. With only $250 to her name, she failed miserably until a pact with someone turned her life upside down. It wasn't until she turned 30, when she met and married her husband in Dallas, Texas, when the journey of her character transformation began.
Rebecca writes books that are thrilling, first person relationship dialog. They're designed to make you feel like you're sitting across the table, having an intimate conversation. They're fast-page turning emotional driven tell all style reads. The novels touch on very human emotions of loss, grief, love, friendships and the struggles of what was every day life for Rebecca.
Although she's extracted some of the events of her life to tell a great story, Rebecca is a consummate survivor. She's been through intersections of abandonment, rape, fire, torture, sexual and physical abuse, been shot at, had a knife pulled, and many more events that have left her in the brutal grasp of despair. However, God pulled her through it, and her novels have an undercurrent of the audacity she had to pick herself back up, with His help, and live an authentic life. Rebecca does not see herself as a victim. She views her past as a learning opportunity to master the grace and unconditionalness she has with relationships of those close to her.
These novels are a work of fiction. Rebecca is currently working on a truthful memoir called, She Dances. That product is not fully written and is a work in progress. In her memoir, She Dances, Rebecca talks about her ability to get through the pain and to the other side of enjoying life to it's fullest. She often speaks of how she changed her perspective. She offers the truth that those who offended or were around when one person is broken, will resist change. Just keep going. Don't allow the deceiver's whispers to hold you back from the destiny that God has for you. Everything is fixable.
In mid 2016, Rebecca’s life took a dramatic turn when she had to adopt three tween kids due to the fact their parents died of cancer. It was her families wish that she raises them. The two youngest girls, Samantha and Laura are both special needs, while the oldest boy, Brandon is gifted. Her extensive background in mainstreaming her own son, who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, led to this decision. She moved from her beloved home in Lacombe, Louisiana to Murphy, Texas. Her son, Jacob moved here in January the past year to support Rebecca in an effort to bring some normalcy to the children’s lives. Her daughter, Elizabeth moved at the same time after graduating UNO in January 2018. With her son moving to Colorado now, 4 of the 5 kids remain at home. All active in sports and community-based events, this leaves Rebecca’s time limited. At times she’s booked months in advance.
