Claude Beccai is an inveterate storyteller. She has spun yarns since early childhood to spruce up the truth or to give it a twist to capture an audience at odds with reality. As a long time teacher, her gift to arrange facts has served her well with a broad variety of often reluctant students of all ages, background and mixed abilities. Most of her tales have been delivered orally. She has also been involved in live theater where she is known to have belted, off-key, absurd and outrageous lines.
She now lives in Vancouver, Canada where she pursues a complex career of grandmother for two lovely girls, a trekker on well-paved paths and a loiterer at public libraries. Lately she has decided to put down in writing some of her tales. She was born quite some time ago and she is not dead yet. Untruth pays off.
