I am pleased to introduce Rebecca Bryn an award-winning author and down to earth person. 

When did you first start writing? Was being a writer something you always aspired to be?

I began writing about twelve years ago. I didn’t aspire to write; I rather fell into it by mistake helping a fellow author with her novel. One day I wrote Chapter One and was off.

  What are you currently working on?

I’ve just published the third book of my latest historical series, so am taking a break to reconnect with the real world, mainly husband, children, painting, and life in general.

   What is your best advice based on your own experiences so far to other Authors?

Be prepared for a lot of hard work. Write whenever you can. It doesn’t much matter what you write because every word is honing your craft, and it’s a very steep learning curve. If you love writing, you’ll climb the hill. Someone once said writing was a selfish profession. It’s true: you have to immerse yourself in a different world, and it takes a lot of time and concentration, and it can feel exclusive to those around you. Don’t forget reality exists, and there are people there who need you.

   What of your own writing was your favorite piece?

That’s a hard question to answer. There are passages of each of my books I especially love, usually descriptive pieces, but I think I’m most proud of ‘For Their Country’s Good’ series. It was inspired by my own family history, and I wrote it for myself, my children, and grandchildren. It turned into an epic tale I loved researching and writing.

 A quote by you or your Life motto?

‘The only thing written in stone is your epitaph.’
