As a young child in the mid-80s Bec sat alone in her bedroom writing and illustrating her own series of fantastic fiction short-stories. This early foray into publishing was cut short due to a health and safety violation that saw the small press’ sole employee maimed in a vicious stapler attack.
Liquidators moved in shortly after.
Sadly by the time Bec’s mum decided she was old and responsible enough to wield a stapler once more the dream was over.
Many years wandering in the literary wastelands have seen a variety of changes wrought in Bec’s life. After becoming a mum for the first time in 2007 she began writing her experiences parenting a micro-premmie and was consequently published in the RBWH’s first edition of ‘Royal Mums’ which she read at the book’s launch party.
Through her work with this and other prematurity-related charities, Bec discovered a keen interest in other people’s stories. In telling them and bringing to people’s awareness situations and issues that they may not be familiar with.
