Rebecca Pierre's background in business writing and newspaper journalism led to her second career as a freelance writer. Her work has been published in periodicals and magazines including the Pelican Post, the Independent, Focus on the Coast, North Brunswick Magazine, South Brunswick Magazine and Attache Magazine — the in-flight magazine for US Airways. Her first book of poetry, A Mystery of Moon, published in the spring of 2005, was selected to be placed in the NC Historical Archives at UNC-Chapel Hill. In 2009, her poetry and clay art were featured on the website of NC Poet Laureate, Kathryn Stripling Byer. Her experience writing award-winning poetry brings discipline, an economy of words and vivid descriptions to her work. As a resident of Oak Island since 1992, she has her finger on the pulse of Brunswick County.
