Now, Becky is working to add a new title to her bio – children’s book author/illustrator – and her first book Escape to Play is currently available for presale in a Kickstarter campaign via Bookling Media. The presale campaign ends on March 11.
“Escape to Play offers playful poetry and whimsical illustrations to create an upbeat feeling as you move from page to page,” said Becky. The 36-page hardcover book features full color illustrations and introduces children to art history through paintings recreated in the book.

Becky founded Bookling Media LLC as a new publishing company focused on creating high-quality children’s book under a revolutionary new model that allows authors and illustrators to keep all their intellectual property and publishing rights.
The goal was to raise $9,500 in preorders to make it possible for the book to be printed, but they sailed through that in the first week! Now, the pre-sale is working towards some stretch offers – the next being at $11,500 all order of $35 or more will include a 16-page coloring book.
The tiers include extras such as artwork prints and even school visits by the author. But for only $25 you get a copy of the book and support a local artist.
Becky is a native of Westerville, Ohio, and resides in Delaware with her husband, Matt, and two children.
