Rhonda Parrish


Author, Editor and Hydra-tamer

I have the attention span of 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.

Tiers begin at just $1

Marketing and promotion is tough at the best of times, right? Not only trying to find a way to be heard but to let people know about what I'm doing, what books and stories and poems I have coming out without starting to sound more like a commercial than a person. And...

“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.”
