About the Author

Rebecca Fjelland Davis (also known as Becky Brooks) lives outside Mankato, Minnesota, with her husband and Newfoundland dog, Freya. She writes, rides her bike a few thousand miles a year, and walks the prairie and woods with Freya. A former marathoner and two-time women's champion of the National 24-Hour Challenge cycling event (and yes, she used to play baseball and pitched softball), she says her young characters are athletes because she doesn't understand sedentary lives. Becky's motto: "Better to burn out than to rust out." She grew up on a farm near Huxley, Iowa, and now teaches writing, humanities, and literature at South Central College in North Mankato. Her other publications include Medusa Tells All: Beauty Missing, Hair Hissing (Capstone, 2014), Chasing AllieCat (Flux, 2011), Woof and Wag: Bringing Home a Dog (Picture Window Books, 2008), Jake Riley: Irreparably Damaged (HarperCollins, 2003), and nine other children's books with Capstone Press. Her essays have also been published in various periodicals, including most recently "Grave Lesson in Winter" in Mankato Magazine in 2016.
