Rebecca Bowyer

Storyteller, digital strategist, card-carrying story addict and author of speculative fiction novels Stealing Time and Maternal Instinct.
“Increased empathy is our path to a kinder, more inclusive society. Reading is an excellent, risk-free way of walking a few miles in another person’s shoes. Reading is an enjoyable way to manage stress and anxiety in both adults and kids, by allowing us to escape our own worries for a few hours. The dynamic between reading and writing – a joyous, responsive community dynamic – expands our collective minds and helps us imagine a better future.”
