Rebecca (Becky) has two college degrees: An AAS in Business Marketing and Merchandising and a BS in Computer Science. She has owned and operated her own successful video rental business since June of 1990. At one point she owned three stores and now owns two, both called Under One Roof Video. Becky is co-owner, along with her husband Jim, of House Doctors Handyman Service.
A 10-year-old, playing at Becky's house in Cliff Haven, NY, came upon a manuscript Becky wrote in 1978 for a high school creative writing class. The young lady said excitedly to the author, "Wow, this is great! You should be a writer!" This enthusiasm was all Becky needed to begin writing regional children's books. Her 15-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter offer a lot of creative ideas and inspiration.
Becky's business sense has helped her in marketing and promoting her books. The author uses her experience with computers to develop this web site. Her computer expertise has also been invaluable to her while she began her own self-publishing company, Leonard Enterprises, Inc.
Becky has lived in the Adirondack area most of her life and she loves to share her passion(s) of reading and the Adirondacks with younger children.
Becky is a proud member of: Adirondack Center For Writing, SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators) and the Independent Publishers of New England.
