When Beca was young, her father wanted her to be an artist, just like his grandmother, whom he adored. And although Beca loved art, she also loved to dance. At sixteen years old, she started a dance school and spent the next 14 years teaching dance.

Later, at the age of twenty-eight with three kids in tow, Beca went off to UCLA to earn her masters degree in choreography. After she graduated, instead of returning to the dance world Beca decided to learn more about business. She worked at a variety of jobs, chosen primarily on the basis of what they could teach her about herself and how the world works, but sometimes she just took a job to make enough money to support herself and her children.

Eventually, Beca ended up working for 20 years within large financial firms as a Certified Financial Planner. Although she enjoyed the work, Beca became more and more driven by her desire to write and, in the process, shift lives.

So she did. Whether it's fiction or non-fiction, Beca writes with the intention of shifting people's perceptions of what's possible. She has authored several books; she has published perception-shifting Ezines every two weeks for almost 20 years; and she offers two free email series dedicated to perception shifting: The Daily Nudge and The Truth 4 Today. The Truth for Today combines words with art, honoring her grandmother's legacy and fulfilling her father's dream of her becoming an artist.

Beca hopes the stories she writes will help people to shift the stories they choose to live. Beca is also a coach who helps people shift the circumstances of their lives. In further support of her mission, she hosts a podcast called Shift The Story.

As a child, Beca tried to tell everyone about the power of shifting their perceptions. She learned that telling people things doesn't work. But sometimes showing them alternatives does. That is what Beca hopes to achieve, whether through her writing, her coaching, or by simply living.

Today, Beca is a mother, grandmother, and step-mother. When she isn't working, she is reading or working in the garden in Northeast Ohio with her husband, Delbert Piper Sr.
