About the author

Rebecca May Hope

<p>Rebecca May Hope delights in reading and writing the well-crafted phrase. While wordsmithing is its own reward, her weekly writers&rsquo; group provides the impetus to keep writing and polishing. Rebecca couldn&rsquo;t imagine a life without teaching; her middle school, high school, and college students give her a chance to share her passion for words with a new crop of young people each year. When she&rsquo;s not teaching or writing, you&rsquo;ll find Rebecca playing with or rocking her grandbabies, walking her rambunctious ninety-pound Labradoodle on wooded nature trails, or pampering her softer-than-air Ragdoll cat.</p>
