Rapid-Fire Fiction Celebrates 10 Years!

Ronie Uncategorized Leave a Comment

This March officially marks the 10th Anniversary of Rapid-Fire Fiction first being published–and I’m DEAD! I cannot believe I’ve been published for ten years, and in that time, I’ve had twenty-five stories released into the wild. My first contract came in 2008. When Steve Laube called to offer representation in February 2007, I had no idea the journey I’d just been plucked into with its highs, lows, victories, tears, awards, best-seller lists, speaking engagements, teaching at conferences … It is hard work, but I wouldn’t want any other job! The easiest part of this career is that I get to write. I love writing, and I’ve LOVED writing paramilitary fiction for the last 12+ years and being a part of …

What Is A Space Opera?

Ronie Uncategorized Leave a Comment

I’ve written over twenty suspense novels and novellas, and three fantasy novels, so when readers became aware that I had a science fiction novel coming out, they weren’t really surprised. Especially when I explained this story-of-my-heart that has been in the works for fourteen years is a space opera. A what? *insert deer-in-headlights look* A space opera. Let’s break down this definition so it’s not really so “out there.” Basically, it’s a subgenre that falls under science fiction, but to the soft side, not the hard side (because Ronie can’t “science” to save her life, y’all).
