Becky Doughty is the author of the award-winning Elderberry Croft Series, The Fallout Series, The Gustafson Girls Series, Waters Fall, and more. She writes Commercial Fiction in Women’s Fiction, Romance, and Coming of Age categories. Becky is also the voice behind BraveHeart Audiobooks, a rapidly growing library of (mostly) family-friendly audiobooks.
According to Becky, “Some of my fiction is written from a Christian worldview (and clearly labeled), and some of it is written for the General Market. All my stories, however, are light on language, violence, and sex, so if you’re looking for a book you don’t have to shove under the couch cushion when visitors stop by, you’ve come to the right place!” Her favorite people are edge-dwellers, those who live on that fine line where hope and despair meet, where love is the only answer and grace becomes truly amazing.
Becky is married to her champion of almost 30 years. They have three children, two of whom are grown and starting families of their own, and they all live within a few miles of each other in Southern California. They share their lives with too many animals, a large vegetable garden, and a strange underground concrete room they’re certain was built for dark and sinister purposes….

Twelve Trivial Truths About Me:
- I’m part chameleon. Not because I can change colors on demand (which would be AWESOME!), but because I can move my eyes independently of each other. It gives me a serious eye-strain headache, but it’s entertaining. I may post a video one day ….
- I live in Southern California, but I can’t stand the sun. It burns my eyes and makes my skin turn glittery–er, I mean, red. I should live somewhere like Ireland or Scotland where it rains a lot.
- Speaking of Ireland, I ran The Dublin Marathon in Dublin, Ireland, in the year 2000. That was my “epic millennial triumph” for the turn of the millennium. It rained the whole 26.2 miles. Chafing and blisters commenced.
- I am adopted. It’s pretty cool. I come from nowhere, anywhere, and everywhere.
- Speaking of being adopted, one of my favorite pastimes is people-watching. In airports, and waiting rooms, etc., I pretend to read, but really, I look for people who might be my long-lost birth relatives, then I write reunion scenes in my head. Some day, I might publish those reunion stories.
- I still read aloud to our 20-something year-old married children after dinner during our weekly Family Night. We like all things Middle Earth, Otherworld, Time-travel, and non-Muggle. We keep it real, baby.
- I have a secret that I can’t tell you.
- My children have some incredible tattoos.
- Book stuff: I love to read historical fiction, but I usually write contemporary fiction. I keep threatening to put out a nonfiction book … but I kinda like the whole … ahem … ‘creative license’ thing with fiction. Baby, I was BORN TO LIE! (Bumper sticker, anyone?)
- I grew up in the boonies, so we had no television. But one of our supporting churches sent a shipment of all the Nancy Drew books ever published to us for Christmas one year. No, I wasn’t Nancy. I was George.
- Another of my favorite novels while growing up was Louis L’Amour’s Down the Long Hills. I first read it because my dad loved Louis L’Amour, and I wanted to be like him. (Dad, not Louis. Except for the writing a gazillion books and making a living at lying part.) I still have that original hard-back copy in my library.
- Speaking of Louis L’Amour, I’m what’s considered a “Pantser” – I write by the seat of my pants. I usually come out of a dream with a story or plot idea, but don’t map much out until I’m actually writing the book. What does that have to do with my buddy, Louie?
“One day I was speeding along at the typewriter, and my daughter – who was a child at the time – asked me, “Daddy, why are you writing so fast?” And I replied, “Because I want to see how the story turns out!” ~ Louis L’Amour
