I, Rebecca Lynn Davis, am the CEO behind authors Bekki Lynn and Rena Kalb.. I live in Illinois around my growing famly and friends. By growing, I mean grandchildren. I have three beautiful granddaughters and one handsome grandson. I have so much fun with them! My backyard look like
I began writing in high school and the need to continue never waned. Starting with poetry and what I guess would be considered fan fiction today, I moved onto romance and women's lit. In 2007 seven, I learned due to the nature of the sexual content in my books, I was writing erotic romance. The things you learn as you grow.
My first published book was A Psychic Hitch, the first in the Servin' It Up series. It was contracted fourteen months after I wrote it during NANO month, November 2006. Book two, Last Glass of Wine, was written in 2007 and followed book one into the published world in 2008. Book three is written, however, book four isn't finished. The series will start coming out soon with new covers, since it's no longer contracted. In 2009, my third book 'Jewel of the Sun's BLOOD DESTINY' and a few novellas was published. A year later I had the rights back.
I decided then to give self-publishing a try. It's been six years and I'm very happy with the growth and respect Indie Publishing has received. Done right, I believe it gives writer's hope, because few make it into traditional publishing, and digital publishers aren't for everyone. You never stop growing and learning as a writer and exploring options is one of those ways.
I belong to a few Facebook groups for indie authors. Some are for promotion, one is for the business end, and my favorite one is for writers who need a little help and support, but mostly we try to drive one another crazy. Post scenarios for the purpose of getting the reaction for projects. There are a lot of poets there, too. I feel right at home.
Obviously, Bekki Lynn, comes from my name, but Rena came from researching my great grandmother who was Blackfoot. I was reading about a family and they had a daughter named Rena, very pretty. Kalb is my paternal grandmother's maiden name. I'm heavy into genealogy.
Now, for a downer.
There are things I would like you to know since it does affect my daily life. I worry about offending anyone or going off the wrong side of what's normal for me as I did in 2008, before I was diagnosed in 2012. I have GAD (generalized anxiety disorder - I've been told I was probably born with it), Dysthmic Disorder, ADD, Panic Disorder, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Insomnia, Sleep Apnea, Chronic Headaches & Migraines along with physical ailments as a result of the treatment for Triple Negative Breast Cancer in 2011/2012l. I go through periods where I shut myself off from the world and it can last a week or a month. Along with medication, I've learned to recognize the warning signs. I don't want anyone to think I'm not serious with my writing. Or worse, think I'm not interested in socializing.
What am I working on right now, besides my new website? Check out my blog for updates. I have some goodies coming your way from both Bekki and Rena.
