My writing desk is situated in the front room of our home. See it there, in front of the window? Yep, right smack in the middle of everything! I write in this spot for two reasons: 1) I have three kids who are ornery enough to take up all the other rooms. 2) I really love for my desk to overlook a big window. Even when I’m hard at work, I feel connected to the seasons, to God’s creation, and to my neighborhood. I have a bright and constant view of dog walkers, cars, babies in strollers, elderly couples. And I’m the first to spot my kids whenever they’re dropped off out front by their friends’ moms.
Here’s a close-up of my desk. In addition to the necessary technology, it holds kid’s photos—for cuteness. And speakers—for the times when I rock out to praise songs. I recently upgraded to the leather and wooden office chair you’re seeing. Now, if only I can convince it to quit tipping backward on me. . . .
During her childhood in California, Becky frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She’s been a fan of all things romantic ever since.
Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky’s passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances with Avon Books, then put her career on hold for several years to care for her kids, then recently returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She felt led to move to the genre of contemporary Christian romance and couldn’t be more thrilled with it.
These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
