Billie Best Bio & Social Media

Billie Best has had many careers. Born in the middle of the U.S. in the middle of the last century, she has lived on both coasts, and she’s still discovering herself. Although she entered her first writing competition as a child, she didn’t commit to being a writer until she was in her 60s. Before that she was a farmer. Before that she worked in the corporate world. Before that she worked in the music business. Before that she was a waitress. You might say she took the long road to learning the alphabet as a way of life. Today she’s an authentic voice living out loud, sharing her experience of being a female human on planet Earth. Her memoir, blog and feminist fiction elevate her grit to inspiration as she challenges her readers to open their minds, embrace change, and appreciate the unexpected. As she’s fond of saying, life is a river, not a grid.
