At fifteen, Rebecca Price Janney faced-off with the editor of her local newspaper--she wanted to write for the paper; he nearly laughed her out of the office. Then she displayed her ace--a portfolio of celebrity interviews she’d written for a bigger paper’s teen supplement. By the next month she was covering the Philadelphia Phillies!
During Rebecca’s senior year in high school, Seventeen published her first magazine article and in conjunction with the Columbia Scholastic Press Association named her a runner-up in their teen-of-the-year contest. She’s now the author of 20 published books including her latest, Easton in the Valley, a novel, and two youth mystery series, as well as hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles.
Her other books include:
Easton at the Forks, Great Women in American History, Great Stories in American History, Great Events in American History, and Great Letters in American History, along with Harriet Tubman, Then Comes Marriage? and Who Goes There?
A popular speaker for civic organizations, churches, synagogues, women’s retreats, writing conferences, and schools, Rebecca also appears on radio and TV. She’s a graduate of Lafayette College and Princeton Theological Seminary, and she received her doctorate from Biblical Seminary where she focused on the role of women in American history. She lives with her husband, son, and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in suburban Philadelphia. Theirs is a Revolutionary family—Rebecca is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, her husband is a Son of the American Revolution, and her son is a member of the Children of the American Revolution!
The Easton Series from Elk Lake Publishing, includes the first two novels about two people, two hundred years apart, joined by family ties, life experiences, and a winsome place that beckons all to "come home." Book three is due next summer.
