I recently had a lovely interview with Becky Claxon to get to know more about her and this is what she had to say...

Becky: I’m writing this on August 12, 2020, which is my 67 birthday. I don’t feel 67, but more like maybe 47. I have loved to read since a young child. I used to have all the Nancy Drew books when I was young. My name is on a plaque (or was) in my hometown in Indiana because of all the books I read. Needless to say, I always tested out in school as reading three or four grade levels above me. I guess I read a lot because I am an only child and an introvert.

Once I stopped working, I began to read more and more books. I have a few authors I help with typo corrections and read lots of ARC’s for authors. If I find a typo for any author, I let them know instead of complaining about it. It is crazy how five people can look at the same thing and all five may find a typo no one else did. Funny but it seems none of us are perfect! I probably read around 250-275 books a year. I love romance, romance suspense, western — I guess I should say that I am not crazy about paranormal or vampire books. Reading allows me to travel to so many different places, be a different person, and make so many friends. I also become the character in the book. It usually takes me a few hours to go back to reality after I read a book!

This crazy Covid 19 has changed the world so much. My granddaughter and grandson play club volleyball and I love to go to all the cities and different states for their games. That has been one of the hardest things I have had to adjust to this year as that all ended in March. I missed being able to travel to Florida to see family and friends too. We were blessed that we had an in ground pool put in August of 2018. It has been relaxing to use the pool since we couldn’t go anywhere. And what is better than floating around reading a book! I pray this pandemic is over soon so we can get back to normal or at least a new normal.
Lexi: Becky, I love this! And I love your pictures!
Your mom is my hero! How fun to have your family all together and with a pool as well. No way to get lonely during Covid that way. 😊
I'm so glad you are cancer free! It's great to know someone else prefers tea over coffee. I really don't like the taste of coffee, even in ice cream!
