Author, Editor and Hydra-tamer
I have the attention span of a a magpie and am constantly distracted by shiny things.
I’m the editor of many anthologies and author of plenty of books, stories and poems. I live with my husband and our three cats in Edmonton, Alberta, where I can often be found playing Dungeons and Dragons, bingeing crime dramas, doing crafty stuff or cheering on the Oilers.
As for that ‘hydra-taming’ thing? I call my to-do list The Hydra because every time I knock one thing off it two more spring up in its place. If you check out the illustrations spread across this website you may discover a story about how I went from a hydra-slayer to a hydra-tamer 🙂
My Patreon is the best way to keep up with everything I’m doing and support my work.
Every patron at every single level gets behind-the-scenes access and information, cover reveals and announcements ahead of the general public, dozens of short stories and poems and even full-length novels and anthologies.

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago -- okay, maybe more like seven or eight years but it feels like a lifetime -- I thought I might like to edit an anthology... an anthology I would call Arcana. That's right. This is the very first anthology I ever conceived of...
Today is International Women's Day and to celebrate Tyche Books has knocked down the price on two of my books to only 99c for this week only. So if you haven't had a chance to pick up Hollow (written by me) or Air: Sylphs, Spirits and Swan Maidens (edited by me) now...
“Rhonda Parrish is a shapeshifter with talents to match her every incarnation- magpie tenacity for picking the shiniest submissions, nightingale notes for crafting tales, and bright, feline eyes for seeking out her photographic subjects. She balances on the knife-edge of darkness and light, a sorceress of both realms.”
