She jumped for joy when she realized that YTV is showing new episodes of the Transformers. Then she watched it and started to wonder if it had always been that dumb.
Becca started writing stories at the age of five. Her very first work was a Christmas story starring Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang. She even illustrated the story. From there, she wrote stories about Jem and the Holograms, numerous other cartoon shows, as well as her own made up characters, The Baby Detectives, which she collaborated on with her friend Danielle. The detectives were baby animals. And yes, they illustrated those stories too.
As a teenager, Becca continued to write stories based on TV shows. She spent an entire summer writing a short novel based on seaQuest DSV, with her own supersub, her own Canadian crew, her own teenaged genius and her own talking dolphins. The crew of the seaQuest made an appearance too, but looking back, Becca realizes the story was a complete rip-off of the show. She also started another novel with an original character based on her favorite resident of Port Charles (from General Hospital), Luke Spencer. Maybe if she ever gets back into watching the show, she'll finish the story, who knows?
In the year 2000, Becca's life changed forever. She went to watch the X-Men movie. It was the first time she had seen anything regarding the X-Men or any comics other than the Archie comics. She loved Marvel's Merry Mutants and when she got home after watching the movie, she hit the internet and started researching. She quickly decided that Wolverine and Gambit were the coolest mutants ever and her opinion of that has not changed. She made an X-Men website, and started writing little bits of fanfic, mostly with original characters (probably what True Believers would call Mary Sue characters) and started a Yahoo!Group for fellow X-fans. It was through that club that she met the person responsible for Geek World, Rob K.
For the past three years, Becca has been collecting comics (she owns every Gambit comic available) and gained some permanent muses courtesy of the Thieves and Assassins Guild of New Orleans (otherwise known as Gambit's family). She has written over sixty fanfics since late 2000 starring the Guild and is showing no signs of stopping. The first person to read all of her stories, no matter what, is Rob K., who has become, among other things, her little brother during the course of the past three years.
If you ask Becca about her muses she will say this: "I have some kind of multiple-personality disorder. I must, because they all live in my head. They talk to me. How else would you explain that?!" She also wishes to state that the second quote up there was said in Gambit #21 by her favorite member of the Guild and the muse closest to her heart, Emil Lapin.
Becca wants to be a professional author someday. She would love to make a living doing what she does for fun all the time: write. And with any luck, she will achieve that goal, probably because she won't give up. But if she does give up, she would settle for being a magazine editor or a website designer or something along those lines.
Becca currently resides in Nova Scotia, Canada with her parents and two cats, Romper and Dax. She has a framed picture of Gambit on her bedroom wall that an amateur artist did for her in 2000 and that she wishes to be buried with when she dies. If that makes her a geek, then she wears the label with pride.
She has a livejournal and invites you to read it whenever you want. If you ask her for a code to start your own journal she will probably laugh in your face. But only because she has no more codes to give out.
She also has a website where she archives all of her fiction. It can be found here and she invites you to visit and read what she's written. Just don't gripe about the unfinished stories. The muses are fussy and only inspire when the mood strikes them. Hey they're professional thieves and assassins...would you argue with them?
