About Rhonda Hopkins
Finding light within the darkness...
Rhonda Hopkins is an award-winning author who lives in a small town in Texas on five acres with cows, chickens, a dog, two cats, a few strays, and occasional wildlife. Living just outside Fort Worth, she feels she has the best of both worlds - a peaceful small town within minutes of a big city.
Before she began publishing her books, she was an investigator for twenty years for the state and county. She met all kinds of people and loved the interactions with folks from all walks of life. Sometimes things got a little (or occasionally a lot) scary. But there were humorous times, too. She uses her past experiences to craft characters that are diverse and full of life, along with situations that include the dark and the light side of humanity. Her characters reach for their destiny with courage and heart - and, a lot of roadblocks along the way.
Rhonda loves reading and writing a variety of genres. She's written apocalyptic fiction, paranormal, nonfiction, and has just put her first YA paranormal cozy mystery, A Witchy Surprise, up for pre-order. If you want to get the taste of the new series, Witches of Whispering Pines, you can get the prequel novella, A Witchy Mistake for FREE when you subscribe to her email list at https://subscribe.rhondahopkins.com.
