Rebecca Wells

Rebecca Wells is a playwright, performer, and author of the New York Times #1 best seller Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. She grew up on a cotton farm, studied with Allen Ginsberg and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and worked as an acting coach.

The storytelling culture of her homeland mixed with the quiet spiritual discipline of Tibetan Buddhism and the expressiveness of the African Methodist Episcopal Church go to create the rich gumbo of creativity from which her work springs.
