I’m over here minding my own business, having dinner with my husband–at a restaurant for the first time in six months!!–and my phone starts blowing up … BRAND OF LIGHT won the 2020 ACFW Carol Award – Speculative!! This is the first-ever win with this award, which is special to me for so many reasons, including that I grew up in ACFW as an author, I coordinated the Carols a while back, and–mostly–because BRAND is truly the story of my heart and one I never gave up on. WOWOWOW!!!!

VVolt Cancer Fund-raiser

Ronie Uncategorized Leave a Comment

For those who have missed my posts on Facebook or Instagram, two weeks ago it was determined that my retired military working dog, VVolt N629, was once again battling cancer. The diagnosis came Saturday morning and Monday afternoon, he received his first round of chemotherapy. On Monday the 22nd, he will begin an aggressive radiation treatment against the hystiocytic sarcoma that spread from his leg (diagnosed/treated last October – November) to his abdomen and enlarged his lymph nodes. Mercifully, VVolt is covered by the United States War Dogs Association under their medical and Rx program, so we have had no financial cost, save the cost of gas to drive to the clinic about 45 minutes away. However, the cost is …

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 …
