About Me

~ Dum Spiro Spero ~

While I breathe, I hope.

Cicero / Theocritus


My given name is R. Ellen Bishop. I chose to write under the pen name Rebecca E. McEwen to honor my mother and my grandmother.  They both will forever be in my heart, and I will always remember them every time I take pen to page.  Their strength and love is my inspiration.

I am a neurodivergent with ADD living mainly in the vast expanse of my imagination. I find solace in my writing, whether it be poetry, short stories, or journaling. You can find my poetry here, ~   


I am a daydreamer and hippie soul, living on the crunchy side of life with my fur-buddies, Ollie, and Padme.  I am also a mother to three amazing sons and grandmother to four precious grandchildren.
