"Getting to know" Author Becky Moore ...*Contest*



Becky Moore is tall and buxom, highly educated and culturally savvy. She’s a world traveler, problem solver, crusader. Thankful for the love of reading she inherited from her mom, mother to a superbly cool kid, wife to the world’s most handsome man. A marathon runner, freelance photographer, faithful companion to Magnolia May the beagle, and a prolific reader and writer.


In her down time, and in the real world, Becky loves to spend time with her husband and son. They live in the urban wilds of central North Carolina. Becky is an avid gardener, hiker, kayaker, bicyclist, knitter, and community volunteer. She spent over a dozen years working as a writer, graphic artist, photographer and PR whiz in the pharmaceutical advertising, hi-tech, performing arts, and HIV/AIDS (grantwriting) fields before venturing into her current status of full-time author.


And like her favorite characters, when you close her books, Becky will be just be a fond memory.

Great post. It's always cool to find out more about the author. I think it's cool that you run marathons.

I love that you guys take the time to feature up and coming authors!

Hi Becky, I keep seeing a lot of great authors coming out of North Carolina.

I think I need to move. Maybe I will get a publishing deal. LOL
Thanks for sharing your info with all of us.

Thanks Danielle! And Lizzie, I've lived in NC since my dad's Army transfer brought us from Germany back to the states when I was about four (post-Vietnam War ending). My mother's family is from the ol' North State ... It's one of the most beautiful states for its beaches and mountains. We can do all of out outdoor activities within a fifteen minute hike or drive.

What a coincidence Becky...we also live in central Carolina. What are your inspirations for your books?

Becky Moore said...

Hi fedcordesign.

Go NC! I find inspiration in all kinds of places. As a keen observer of life, I notice everything. It drove my mother crazy when I was a kid because she couldn't get away with anything. As an adult, I put those powers of observation to work in my professional life. During my years writing grants for an HIV/AIDS program, I really came to look at things differently, at the people who deal with such insurmountable-seeming issues, yet who refuse to give up. I admire tenacity and optimism, and find that those traits really call to me. THanks for asking!

While I really enjoyed "The Penalty Box" I also liked your first publication, "The Right Words". Do you have anything new ready for your reading fans?
