Introduction

Rhi’s formative years were spent steeped in military culture, and it influences every story—with a definitive twist. Though focusing mainly on science fiction and fantasy, Rhi enjoys spicing things up with a speculative mixture that sometimes defies an easy label. Next to Elizabeth Moon and Meredith Ann Pierce, Rhi counts Jane’s Defense and Popular Science among still-strong influences. 

For Rhi, writing is how the muses tell their stories. They might begin small but they rarely remain so. “Some of them require luring or bribery to draw them out. Usually wine and chocolate work well. Other times all it takes is a little art. But once they realize I’m listening, they will just keep going.”

Bragging rights
Just barely managed to squeak in a completed first draft of my current WIP by my March 31st deadline. Yay for editing!

Guest post over on Well Read, about the origins of Black's character, and how an aspiration to break out of the writer equivalent of Mississippi Mud turned into a full-length novel.

"This was a dark, painful difficult yet beautiful book to read and it was extremely emotionally charged."

The blurb for "Blacker Than Black" has gone public. Definitely feels like a striptease. ..
