Hello and Welcome to my Official Website.
I hope to be able to keep you informed with the progress on my books and answer any questions you might have so please re-visit as often as you can.
My name is Becca Van. I live in Victoria, Australia with my wonderful hubby of many years, as well as my two teenage children, a pigeon pair and two dogs. I have always wanted to write but never had the confidence to actually take the plunge.
I was sick and tired of being in a boring dead end job in sales and newspaper advertising and finally bit the bullet and quit my job. I wanted to write and decided to utilize my time with something I knew I would enjoy and had always wanted to do. I used to have trouble getting out of bed to greet another boring day, but not anymore. I literally jump out of bed with excitement each day and can’t wait for my laptop to power up so I can get to work.
I have been an exclusive author for Siren Bookstrand since September 2011. I truly hope you like my style of writing. I have a western, cowboy, contemporary, ménage series in the works. Also a paranormal shape shifting series and a werewolf series. I also have a couple of stand-alone stories. I continue to develop and challenge myself in my writing, with the help of the editing team at Siren Bookstrand, and hope I can keep you entertained and coming back for more.
I love to write erotic romance and have so many stories rattling around in my head I can’t get them out onto my laptop monitor fast enough. I am writing in the sub-genre erotic romance of paranormal, shape shifters, werewolves, contemporary, western, cowboys, time travel, historical, science fiction, fantasy, as well as futuristic and I may even write a vampire story in the future.
I usually begin my day between 5am- 7am and the first thing I do is power-up my laptop and grab a coffee. I check my emails, grab more coffee and begin work. I have about an hour of writing under my belt before I stop and take my son to school. Then it’s back home and back to work.
I usually plot out my character’s first, by age, height, looks, etc, I pick a location on Google maps. Then I write. I usually just let my fingers flow over my laptop and let the story develop. I may have an idea on how a story will go, but then I find myself heading in a completely different direction than I thought. My characters tend to lead me where they want to go and I just let my fingers tap away.
I do try and edit my work, but find my brain reads what it wants to and since I had no idea what to do in the editing department of writing, until I started work with Siren Bookstrand, I did a dismal job. I am learning quickly and hope my writing improves as I learn from the wonderful people at Siren.
More content will be added to my website as I progress in my writing and I look forward to hearing from you all.
My husband does all the work on my website as I have no clue at all, lol. Thanks honey, you’re great.
Thanks so much for all your support and don’t hesitate to email me. I may take a few days to reply, but reply I will.
