|Rebecca North Young has written two books of monologues and has a third on the way. Regarding her inspiration for the 300+ monologues so far, she says, “I have three girls, two of which are still teenagers, one just barely out of that age range. It’s all about comedy and tragedy around my house. Believe me, there’s not much else in between.” Friends and family (she won’t dare say who), television, and just a plain old overactive imagination help Rebecca create a wide array of monologues to choose from.
When she’s not writing monologues, Rebecca writes and directs drama for middle and high school students at her church. She co-founded a group called One Voice who travels annually to perform at various churches. It is a great passion of hers to combine writing and working with youth.
Rebecca currently works in a totally “non-dramatic” profession as a technical trainer in Lexington, Kentucky. She has a BA in Communications/Marketing from the University of Kentucky.|
