B O O K B L U R B S:

"This beautifully written memoir is funny, poignant, and life-affirming. Becky Povich is an American treasure."
Michael Lee West, bestselling author of
Crazy Ladies, Mad Girls in Love, Gone With a Handsomer Man, and more.

"Becky Povich has a light and whimsical way with words, and a knack for making the everyday seem a bit more special."
Philip Gulley, bestselling author of Porch Talk Series, Harmony Series, I Love You Miss Huddleston, and more.


"Becky Povich’s memoir From Pigtails to Chin Hairs is a series of finely drawn vignettes that does everything a good memoir should do—makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you want to sit down and have a cup of coffee with the author." Judith Ryan Hendricks, bestselling author of the Bread Alone series, Isabel’s Daughter, and The Laws of Harmony.

"Reading about life’s tender and ridiculous lessons in From Pigtails to Chin Hairs brought my own life into sharper focus. Becky Povich turns low points, detours, and crowbars into stories that make me appreciate my own pigtail days, as well as the wisdom that comes long after." Susan Bono, Editor and Publisher of Tiny Lights: A Journal of Personal Narrative.

"Charming." A.E. Hotchner, commenting on the chapter "Doris Day, A.E. Hotchner, and Me"

  8. Funny, media may tell me I should fear birthdays-- especially this year's (it's the big 5-0), but I love them. I love the chance to celebrate aging, wisdom, a different definition of beauty and the joys of experience. Happy birthday, Becky!

    1. Hi Julie! Thank you very much. What a wonderful way to look at birthdays. I've never thought of mine in those words, but I do love celebrating them, and knowing that I'm not really getting older, I'm just becoming more aware of who I'm supposed to be. (Kind of like the quote by Lynn Hall in the blog header.)
