Bebra has been writing professionally for more than 20 years. She holds bachelor degrees in journalism and English from the University of Alabama.

She narrowly escaped a career as an English teacher, when, at age 21, she found herself lecturing on “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” to high school seniors who did not care one whit about old sailors and dead albatrosses. Nor did they care about Shakespeare’s sonnets.

It is rumored that Bebra escaped from her students by crawling through an open window in the second floor teacher’s lounge during a mid-morning pep rally. (This information is unconfirmed.)

After the Great Escape, she began working as an advertising copywriter in Birmingham, Alabama, producing award-winning work in print, radio and television. An opportunity with ABC Radio in Houston, Texas soon followed.

Four years later, another geographic move took her to Tracy-Locke Dallas. In that capacity, over a two-year period, she wrote and produced more than 100 on-location television and radio commercials for Frito-Lay’s joint venture with national sports teams, including the New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, New England Patriots, Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons, and the Dallas Cowboys. Campaign proceeds benefitted charitable organizations dedicated to helping children, such as Special Olympics in Washington D.C. and children’s hospitals in team cities.

At age 29, Bebra started her own writing business. Her clients have included Nasher Sculpture Center, the Dallas Arboretum, Pier One Imports, Summit Hotels International, Rodeway Inns, Southwest Airlines, Texas Instruments, Neiman-Marcus, EDS, Digital Switch Corporation, Briggs-Freeman Realtors, the Billingsley Company, and many financial institutions and real estate development companies.

In the early 1990s, Bebra wrote and co-produced Dallas’ city-wide awareness campaign, Is Family Violence Hurting You? Her efforts brought together crisis counseling centers including The Family Place, Genesis Women’s Shelter, and the Dallas County Medical Society & Auxiliary. She worked to establish one central emergency phone number for women and children in crisis, strategically publicized in hospitals, physician offices, city shelters and downtown public buildings. The campaign resulted in a mayoral commendation, and brought attention to the fact that domestic abuse, though vastly under-reported, cuts across every socio-economic strata.

Today, Bebra’s writing encompasses children’s books, feature essays, corporate and non-profit marketing, broadcast, and new media including website content and on-line branding.

As a Mother, Bebra has been greatly blessed with the opportunity of raising her son, Trenton, who is a student at the University of Southern California.
