She graduated from Northwestern College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a Writing Emphasis. But after graduation, she pursued songwriting, recording, and performing with her band, and writing went on the back-burner.
In 2016, her entire department at work was let go, which led to some time off and she was inspired by the NaNoWriMo challenge to return to writing. The challenge was to draft a novel in 30 days, and since then she hasn’t stopped.
Bethany's other passion is to help other writers, especially those who wish to self-publish. She has a business as a writing coach over on Patreon, dedicated to helping other authors write and publish their novels, as well as a YouTube channel with free writing and publishing advice.
Outside of writing, Bethany is a crazy dog lady obsessed with her corgi puppy, Penny, a wife, a musician, an amateur painter, and a follower of Jesus.
