"The woods are lovely,
dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go
before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep."

Author Rina Heisel

​uncommon partnerships."

HI!   I'm Rina.

Welcome to my website! I love to write, mostly about things furry and fantastical, with a touch of funny  and a healthy pinch of creepy.
