Take A Breath.
My website isn’t just a place where you can read my bio and buy my books or request me for your school. It’s a place where you can take a breath. Read some stories, listen to some podcasts, discover a few ideas or tools you hadn’t thought of before and leave - I hope - feeling uplifted.
Away from this page, I’m an aunty and a godmother to several tween and teen girls. But I’d like to think I can also be an unofficial godmother to all those girls out there who need another grownup in their corner offering advice and wisdom and understanding.
Are you ready? Let's get going!
Bec is the author of three best-selling novels The Girl Most Likely, The Year Nick McGowan Came to Stay and Joel and Cat Set The Story Straight (co-authored with Nick Earls). Since 2009 Rebecca has focused on writing non-fiction books for teenage girls to help them navigate those tricky high school years. Those books include Find Your Tribe (and 9 other things I wish I’d known in high school); Find Your Feet (The 8 things I Wish I’d Known Before I Left High School) and the best-selling Ask Me Anything (heartfelt answers to 65 anonymous questions from teenage girls).
