Rebecca (Becky) Fjelland Davis Brooks, Fiction and Nonfiction Editor
Rebecca Fjelland Davis is a novelist and YA and children’s book author who lives in Minnesota. Becky is a serious cyclist and loves to write about her passions: bicycling, dogs, farms, family, and friendship.
She grew up on a farm outside of Huxley, Iowa, where she rode horses a lot. Becky thinks that love transferred to riding bikes. In the last few years, she hasn’t raced much, but she rides a few thousand miles a year, avidly follows racing, and loves to write about it. As far as we know, Chasing AllieCat is the only novel with a competitive female cyclist as the main character!
Becky retired from her position as instructor at South Central College in Mankato, where she taught Composition, Literature and Film (including Children’s Lit), and Humanities. She graduated from Waldorf College, earned her Bachelor of Arts in English from St. Cloud State University, and received her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato.
