R.L. Syme, who also writes as Becca Boyd, is a former worship pastor from Montana with a background in consulting, communications/social media, and the restaurant business. She now works on proving that all those Systematic Theology courses were worth it by writing romance novels.
Born and raised in the Last Best Place, R.L. Syme (Rebecca) currently resides in Bozeman, Montana—the intersection of creativity, outdoor recreation, and contemporary rural living in Montana. She has worked with kids in various nonprofit settings that involve music, theater, dance, food, and after-school fun. She holds membership in RWA, SCBWI, and NINC, and is very active in special interest chapters of RWA. A former communications director and consultant, she holds an undergrad degree in English and an advanced degree in Leadership and Theology. Of course, her life followed a natural progression into writing kissing books. She writes contemporary romantic suspense, young adult romance, and historical romance.
She writes historical romance as R.L. Syme and small town romance as Becca Boyd.
Rebecca was nominated for a Genesis Award in Contemporary Romance and has won several writing contests in historical romance, young adult romance, and contemporary fiction. She is also a USA Today bestselling author. She has taught classes in food writing, world building, social media, newsletters, leadership transitions, and writing techniques, and has held chapter leadership positions in multiple RWA chapters. True to her Montana roots, Rebecca’s heart will always be on the farm.
