Beth Allen Estrada

Author, Singer, Songwriter, & Life Coach

Beth Allen Estrada grew up in rural Appalachia in a culturally rich environment where storytelling was integral to preserving traditions. Her father, Ben, who was partly raised by his grandparents during the economically tough post-Depression era, served as the inspiration for the character Ben. He was a coal miner who taught Beth that people cannot be judged based on their appearance, dress, or way of speaking. Beth's mother, also a coal miner's daughter, modeled deep compassion for others through her faith and acts of kindness.

 

Without cable TV or internet access, Beth’s family often gathered to tell stories or sing hymns, folk, country, and Bluegrass music. Writing short stories, poetry, and music have been ways in which Beth has connected with her inner self and given voice to her deep convictions.
