Becky loves adult fiction and is always eager to find new authors and series to read. She loves being outside and isn’t afraid to get dirty, be silly, or try something new. She is also an avid Saints fan, even though she’s never actually stepped foot in New Orleans. Why the Saints? Drew Brees, or course! She is blessed to have four stepchildren, aged 22, 13, 12, and 10, as well as a fiancé who is also an avid reader. Their 13- and 10-year-old sons are reluctant readers who have completely transformed the way Becky looks at children’s and teen material. Becky and her fiancé are planning to incorporate books into their wedding. Libraries and books aren’t just Becky’s job — they’re her passion!
