Becky Andersen

Becky AndersenBecky began a short but very interesting journey the summer one of her daughters put her on an electronic dating site.

Becky is a native Iowan, and proud to be a Baby Boomer! As the oldest of six children, her life growing up was comparable to the sitcoms of the 1950s and 60s—except her mother never wore pearls. Married to her high school sweetheart, Becky graduated from Iowa State University, became mom to two daughters, and was set to live happily ever after. Fate had other plans when she and her daughters suffered the sudden and unexpected death of her husband.

But life has a way of evening things out, and with the help of two special angels in heaven and her family here on Earth, Becky began a short but very interesting journey the summer one of her daughters put her on an electronic dating site. The result was a book about “old” people dating. And a new husband!

Becky now lives west of Des Moines with her husband, Dave, and like every other grandparent, they try not to brag about their grandchildren. . .but fail!

Becky’s book We’re Not Sixteen Anymore: A Baby Boomer’s Adventures with Online Dating is a new release from WriteLife.
