Hi, I’m Becky, author of The Tall Tales. I am thirty-something years old. I am now in a happy, healthy marriage. I’m also a mum of three and we live in Cheshire, UK. In 2020 I was blessed with the time and space to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. The answer became more and more obvious the more soul searching I did – I wanted to help people.
I spent two years in an abusive relationship, and even more years trying to heal from the effects it had on me. During my healing journey I decided that my main takeaway from that experience was going to be to help others who have been – or are going through – similar experiences. I wanted people to know that it can be left behind, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it doesn’t have to ruin the rest of your life. Working on my strengths I knew the way I was going to help was to write.
As I was growing up I used to keep diaries detailing everything from my favourite rollerball lip-gloss to my dreams of being a vet when I grew up – how times change! I also used to love writing songs and poetry – although the execution of those songs left much to be desired! So whilst doing my inner work these past few years and rediscovering my love for writing it made so much sense to connect the dots and write about my own experiences.
My hope is for anybody who reads my work or follows me on social media to take anything they need from it to help themselves past what I know to be a very dark time. I write honestly, I write raw, I hold nothing back because I want people to know that they aren’t alone in how they feel.
