Rebekah is currently the lead blogger and creator of NICU Voices, an online community dedicated to high-risk pregnancy, premature and traumatic birth experiences, and time spent in the NICU. Following her own journey with premature birth and the NICU, Rebekah hopes to offer support to other parents dealing with the physical, emotional, and spiritual difficulties involved with life before, during, and after the NICU. Eventually, she hopes to write a book about her own experience that will help other families during their tumultuous journey.
In addition to her blog, Rebekah is also a freelance writer with experience in news and feature writing, as well as in fiction. She is a former features editor for The Erwin Record, a weekly publication in Erwin, Tennessee, where she won numerous first, second, and third place awards from the Tennessee Press Association in the categories of: Community Lifestyles, Education Reporting, Public Service, Investigative Reporting, and Local Features. She also serves as the volunteer media liaison for her local March of Dimes division.
“I’ve known Rebekah J Harris throughout all stages of her writing career – reporter, editor, author. Each step of the way, she has always been a shining star. Difficult subject matter doesn’t intimidate her, and, in fact, I think it makes her an even better writer. What’s most important, perhaps, is that Rebekah knows how to get to the heart of any story. Her writing is careful, precise, loving and beautiful. Her words will touch your heart, enrich your soul. My life is better for having known Rebekah J Harris, and readers of her work will find themselves better, as well.”
