Rebecca Wallick is the daughter of legendary Boeing test pilot S. L. “Lew” Wallick. While not a pilot herself (despite her father’s best efforts), she has always had a keen interest in collecting and preserving the aviation history she witnessed growing up. Rebecca earned a degree in history at the University of Washington and law degree at Seattle University. After thirty years of practicing law and writing on the side, she is finally flipping the tables and writing full time (with a little law on the side). Rebecca resides in Kirkland, Washington with her dog Finn MacCool.
