REBECCA KRAFT RECTOR
I am the author of more than thirty fiction and nonfiction books for children. I’ve lived in Maryland, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia.
I’m a twin and the oldest of four children. For as long as I can remember, I loved reading and writing stories and poems. So, it’s no surprise that I became a librarian and writer. But I’ve also worked as a cleaner, babysitter, shampoo girl, filer, typist, reading and study skills teacher, and elementary school network manager.
I love animals, especially cats and horses. My cats Ollie and Opal keep me company while I write. I don’t care for coffee, so my writing is fueled by dark chocolate chips, often eaten on graham crackers.
