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, Rebecca Lee Bishop, and my grandmother, Rebecca Ellen McEwen.  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, ~  www.bendingreality.org.   


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.
