I’m a lifelong southerner with a penchant for storytelling. I worked for over a dozen years as a creative writer, graphic artist, photographer, PR and marketing guru, grantwriter, social advocate, and agent of change (or some combination therein) with McGraw-Hill, Inc., Nortel Networks, Theatre In The Park, WRAL.com, and the Alliance of AIDS Services – Carolina. My work as a freelance writer and photographer has appeared in Our State Magazine, The Apex Herald, The Cary News, The Raleigh Digest, and a handful of industry publications. I’m an adjunct instructor in the Creative Writing Programs at Wake Technical Community College and Central Carolina Community College. And also super fun, I’m a book reviewer with BookPage and Contributor with Frolic.
I write contemporary romance and romantic suspense under the name Becky Moore, and I’m pleased to report that despite the most grandiose, exhilarating, strange, and unlikely plot I can come up with, every story has a happy ending. I write children’s literature under the name Dolly Dozier, and my first story, Peggy Noodle, Hula Hoop Queen, was an Amazon bestseller. After a life-altering accident in July 2012, resulting in a TBI and a long recovery, I am happy to once again be writing! I’m still re-calibrating my voice, but the characters and the settings and the plots are finally ready to break free. Bookshelves … here I come!
I live in the wilds of central North Carolina with my husband and our teenage son, along with our beagle, Magnolia May. When I’m not writing or telling stories, I like to spend time outdoors hiking, kayaking, cycling, swimming, gardening, and traveling with my boys.
