Becky grew up near Lake Michigan and spent most of her time floating around in her Dad’s fishing boat reading a book. She received a BA from Luther College and attended graduate school at the University of Wisconsin. During that time, Becky worked as a children’s bookseller at Barnes and Noble and soon discovered she enjoyed reading picture books much more than scholarly articles. Much, much more.
Now Becky spends her days writing picture books and working part-time at the local library. Her debut picture book P.S. Wildwood Elementary Stinks will be published by Philomel-Penguin 🐧 Random in 2021. When she’s not reading or writing, she can be found hiking through the woods with her two dogs, losing a game of Monopoly to her kids, or riding her bike to the local ice cream shop. She currently lives in Central Wisconsin with her husband, two children, and a few too many pets.
Becky is represented by James McGowan of Bookends Literary.
