Hello! I’m Rebecca. I write for children, teens, and the occasional grown-up.
I write non-fiction, mostly, on a variety of subjects including travel and culture, crafting and creative work, history, the writing process, and media literacy.
I’ve written for Teen Vogue, Highlights’ High Five magazine, Cricket Media’s FACES magazine, The Writer magazine, Writer’s Digest’s Writer’s Market, And North, and elsewhere. My arts & crafts projects have been featured in the Martha Stewart American Made Market, Country Living, and Cool Mom Picks.
I studied Art History and Anthropology as an undergrad at Boston University, earned a Master's degree in Library Science and Archival Administration at Simmons University, and have worked for over a decade in museums, libraries, and archives before focusing on writing and creative projects.
I’ve got a thing for picture books, indie comics, public libraries, and digging into the archives of female movers and shakers. I live in the lower Hudson Valley with my co-collaborators.
