Rhonda Parrish


Author, Editor and Hydra-slayer

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-slaying’ 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.

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.

Tiers begin at just $1

Call for Submissions: Water

Water is the most yielding of all elements, changing to fit its container, whether that be a thimble or a lake bed. At the same time, anyone who has ever watched the unrelenting progression of a tsunami understands its raw power. It is the tranquil azure of a tropical...

“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.”
