Becca was born in Huntsville, Alabama but, unfortunately, never had a chance to attend Space Camp. However, she did receive her BA in Communication from the University of Alabama before moving to sunny Southern California in 2010 to pursue her MFA in English from UC Irvine. She spent seven years at Irvine, as a TA and lecturer, teaching rhetoric and composition to ESL and STEM majors. She also spent four years teaching SAT Reading and Writing at a test prep academy in Los Angeles. Beyond teaching, Becca loves reading, creative writing, video games, and hanging out with her cats.
