Twenty Fun Facts About Me
For a Cause
My plan is that most of my books will have an environmental aspect to it. My middle-grade novel is about bugs on an organic farm. Sadie's Mountain has my main character fighting against MTR (Mountaintop Coal Mining). Sadie decides to fight against it because the rape of the mountain reminds her of what happened to her when she was fourteen. In real life, Gauley Mountain in Ansted, West Virginia (the setting for the book) was blown up. All that remains is a facade of the mountain. But in fiction I have the chance to save it, raise awareness, and help the real fight against MTR.
Music and Life
I also love music, and you can find the soundtracks for my books on my YouTube channel. I'm on Goodreads if you'd like to see the books I fancy! I have a Twitter, but I rarely use it. My name on both websites is @shelbyrrebecca.
What I love best about life is my daughter, Elise. I don't want to share too much about her because I'd like her to have privacy, but just know--I wouldn't be the person I am today without having her in my life. I would be on some other path--some less awesome path, I'm sure. She's my everything.
Thank you for reading, and please keep in touch.
