About Rebecca Goodrich:
Raised in the family inventing business, Rebecca Goodrich left the glitter of California–and the deadly cult of Scientology–to build a houseboat in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. There, in the future home of the Deadliest Catch, Goodrich fought to protect her children from the cult they grew up in and introduced them to the elemental beauty and freedom of Dutch Harbor and its surprising community.
Rebecca started writing poetry at the age of 8. She learned business writing in the family inventing business. She was published at an early age in local publications and even in Reader’s Digest. Over the next 30 years, she worked in bookstores, published articles, and did editing. She won several awards for her writing and started a book project.
In 1994, she left her marriage, cult, and California for Dutch Harbor, Alaska. There she went back to college and worked for newspaper and radio. In 1998 she moved to Anchorage. She edited more and continued to win awards for her writing. She encouraged her editing clients to enter the NFPW Communications Contest and several won first place. She began writing Saving My Soul From Scientology in bits and pieces, fits and starts due to health issues from chemical injuries.
In October 2019, Rebecca moved to Arizona to visit family and friends for a couple of years but Covid froze her in place for months. Now she is finally ready to move back to Alaska and finish editing her manuscript.
Rebecca was a first place winner in this year’s At-large division of the NFPW Communications Contest for a chapter in her memoir.
