Listen to Your Mother
By Becky Rechnitzer
Art by Rachel Coyne
The raucous shout of mountains
Becky splits her time between the Big Bend and the big city of Houston, between science and literature, between her garden and world travel, between getting into trouble and getting out of it. You’ll usually find her laughing with friends and tequila, and if there’s music, she’ll be dancing.
Childhood travels with her bird-loving grandparents frequently brought Coyne to Big Bend. A life-long love of birds is reflected strongly in her works. Coyne is a painter and writer now living in Minnesota. Her books include Whiskey Heart, The Patron Saint of Lost Comfort Lake, and the YA series The Antigone Ravynn Chronicles.
