My book: Life in General

Life in General  is a collection of my essays from the past eight years. These pieces will tell the story of my here and now, my life in this 21st century – what makes me smile and laugh and cringe in fear. They are the compilation of my hopes and dreams, my thoughts about family and home and reading and writing. They are the shared stories of women I know, those of us who struggle to balance our lives with the needs of children and grandchildren, spouses, aging parents, and employers.

At last I can share my stories about Life in General (and my own in particular) with all of you! 



Here’s what readers are saying about Life In General:


"Life in General is poignant, honest, and witty. Just a lovely read for when you want to ponder, settle in, and consider.” Andi Cumbo Floyd

“I just finished reading Life In General and loved every single word! You have a tremendous gift, Becca, and I mean it sincerely when I say that I loved every page/word!" Christa Grix

“Reading Life In General was like sitting having a cup of tea or a glass of wine with a dear friend and chatting about our lives. I can’t wait for Volume 2!” Carolyn Gordon

I love this book! You write about so many things that so many of us can relate to. I am going to buy your book for some of my other friends who will also enjoy the stories you write about. I just want to say ’thank you’ for sharing what so many of us think and feel.”  Melody Roberts Jackson

“Your book is funny and gentle and kind and self-depreacting and insightful and incredibly articulate.” Melissa Bartell

 “Just reading (in your book) that someone else has travelled a similar road that you have brings a peace and comfort that I never expected.” Suzanne O’Dell Bloom

 “I didn’t do what I said I would do and only read a couple of chapters a day of  Life in General.  I started out that way but the more I read the more I realized “Holy Cow, she thinks just like me.”  I’m sad because I’m through reading the book.  Will there be a sequel?” Bonnie Bergeron
