Rebecca Fox Starr is a writer, mother and part-time-dance-partier, who founded “Mommy, Ever After” in 2010 after the birth of her daughter, when she realized that no one was speaking honestly about the difficulties, fears, boredom, loneliness and mixed-emotions that come along with all of the happy enchantment of motherhood. She shared everything from crazy calls to the pediatrician, to costume-clad dance parties, giving readers an intimate look into her little family’s growing life.
In 2013, Rebecca gave birth to her son, and subsequently was afflicted with severe postpartum depression. This life changing experience motivated Rebecca to share her story honestly, in the hopes that she could help others. Her story has been featured across the world; she has been interviewed by The New York Times, ABC News, Main Line Connect, Main Line Parent Magazine and television and print outlets nationwide about her story, and continues to write about her recovery daily.
Rebecca has now started, and currently facilitates, a private online support group for women. Her message is clear: “You are not alone.”
Most of all, Rebecca is a lover; a nurturer; a dance-partier; a singer; and a mother who gives all of herself to her children and to her readers. She is the lead singer/songwriter of the rock duo Fowl Play. And she still believes in magic.
Rebecca attended The Schreyer Honors College of The Pennsylvania State University and The Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
She completed an undergraduate thesis entitled “Just a Little Bit of Dancing: A Cubist Family Portrait Through Writing”.
In order to reach a broader audience, Rebecca got a book deal with Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Company and the First Edition will be released in Hardcover next year. She is currently represented by Renee C. Fountain of the Gandolfo Helin & Fountain Literary Management.
Rebecca has great dreams of expanding Mommy, Ever After, in the hopes of broadening her audience and connecting with others. Her Business Manager is Erin Carlson.
Rebecca’s Public Relations are managed by Kimberly Ettinger of Pearl Communications.
