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.


Hey there! Rina occasionally sends out a newsletter with JOURNEY BEYOND THE BURROW news and event info, writing tips, and recommendations on other cool and/or fun (possibly creepy) things to read and watch. Subscribe here, then check your email!

We named this little mouse Robin Hood. He lives in the log pile behind our house. He earned his name by stealing birdseed out of the garage. I imagine a few of the characters in my books look a lot like this guy!
