About A Word or More

Blue collar authors and writers believe in the combination of books and rolling up their sleeves. I am one of them.

Every Sunday, A Word or More takes you on a journey through books, writing and challenges of everyday life. The combination of the economy, literature, photography and writing are like a hot meal. They make a fresh story; one you have never heard.

I am a writer, mother and teacher assistant who believes writing and books enhance every person’s life. I still believe in picking a book off a shelf and writing a cursive sentence. Most of all, I believe if you hold any dream of becoming an author, the choice to embrace the dream begins with you.

I write under two pen names: Rebecca T. Dickinson and R.T. Dickinson. I have been published with both names. R.T. Dickinson is the pen name for all work connected to my book, Sons of the Edisto.

I work as a teacher assistant, tutor and substitute teacher. I still offer work as a freelance writer. Since July 2011, I have co-authored and edited a memoir project.
