The Inspired Mic December Spotlight – Becky Pourchot

The December Inspired Mic will see us at a new location, Leroy’s 19th Hole, the Country Club restaurant and bar for the Cypress Knoll Golf Course in Palm Coast. The following two weeks this site will display the presenters who will be on stage on December 16th. With the new location comes some new perks. We are excited about our growth and the community’s interest in local talent. Please check back each day for a little insight into our Inspired Mic Event presenters!

Becky never wanted to be a writer. Not ever. Writing was just something she did for fun. Then in’93 a boyfriend asked her to write a column for the college paper he edited and she obliged. Upon graduation she left the boyfriend and her newspaper ambitions behind. Still determined to be anything but a writer, Becky pursued loftier careers like pre-school teacher, ice cream store employer, and Disney Store greeter, but when she had her fill of runny noses, oversized banana splits and perky Disney tunes she decided to take an online writing course.

Inspired by the class, she wrote a seven hundred word piece about the bawdy, local Burlesque scene in Madison, Wisconsin. Becky had no interest in publishing the story—she was after all not a writer—but her friends egged her on, so she sent the story to the local paper. They printed it and paid her!

These days Becky admits to being a writer. She is the author of five books including the Hungry Ghost Series set in Flagler Beach. She loves pushing the edge and doesn’t feel like she’s done her job unless she’s brought her readers along with her on an emotion packed sensual adventure.

You can find her books at www.beckypourchot.com.
