Proof I Was Here

DEBUT NOVEL | Wolsak & Wynn / Buckrider Books, 2019

 
Laced with grit, art, and angst, this evocative novel explores the intersection of privilege and survival, “good” and “bad” behaviour, permanence and the ephemeral… it reminds us of the power of our choices, but also shows how serendipity can, in a moment, change what we think about ourselves and the world.
— Leesa Dean, author of Waiting for the Cyclone

An elegant reminder not only of the malleability of memory, but also of its interruptions. The writing here breathes like a series of long sighs, and there’s a quiet to the prose the way a flame set to parchment is muted yet alive.

Becky’s editing is intelligent, incisive and well-considered. Her reasoned approach, in the context of structure and plot, has made my work tighter and allowed me to see my work from an editor’s perspective as well as a writer’s. I would highly recommend her services.
— Sylvia Arthur, communications consultant and author
