Here’s more information about Becky Benishek
Becky Benishek studied English and Environmental Science at Lawrence University in Wisconsin, and always hoped to turn her lifelong loves of writing, animals, and trees into something wonderful.
Becky writes both children’s books and adult fiction, has more than a few notebooks stuffed with poetry, and occasionally tries her hand (and ear) at songwriting.
One day she intends to go through all the napkins, envelopes, and other scraps of paper lodged in every available spot to turn more ideas, plots, first paragraphs, and titles into actual books.
Becky manages several online communities and helps connect people with the resources they need to help individuals with special needs. She has quite the Lego collection and is prone to sticking googly eyes on everything.
Becky lives with her husband, Dave, and their current guinea pig, Teddy.
