What if you could fly?

When Rhonda’s easygoing father moves them to Volnost to help with the research there, Rhonda is not pleased. The move to a station city floating over nothing but ocean was already a chore, but when the headstrong Rhonda learns she actually must participate in the city’s affairs, she discovers that not all the people in Volnost have its best interests at heart, and things quickly take a turn from horrible to catastrophic; not just for Rhonda, but for all of Volnost.

What Kind of Web Series is Rhonda?

Rhonda is a young adult fantasy/adventure/romance/mystery web series novel. (Whew! Say that a few times.)

I’ve always wished novelists writing a Hero’s Journey would focus on the romance just a tad more. Not too much more, but enough to push it into a more important part of the novel. Even if they’re out saving the world, people still have and want relationships. Buffy: The Vampire Slayer epitomized this for me.

It’s also very character-driven because characters are why I read fiction.

What Kind of Reader Will Enjoy Rhonda?

If you like fantasy that forces characters to solve their own problems where the magic may just make it more complicated rather than easier, where the romance is brought more into the limelight while still playing friendly with a strong plot, where the character’s choices are hard and the results are sometimes hard to live with, then you might enjoy my work.
