Leaving the house to go to school, I had schoolbooks spilling out of one hand, the other holding my place in a Nancy Drew novel, and bunny slippers still on my feet. My mom was a wee bit upset.

I haven't changed much. Still always have a book (or two) in my hand or creating stories in my head, and although I don't have any bunny slippers, I love writing in my jammies and snuggly slipper socks.

With my husband TJ (my own cuddly werewolf), I home-school our three girls, who keep us busy with art, science projects, books to read, dance classes, and walks about the park.

Deceiving Dragons cover - beautiful woman with black hair wearing leather, sitting in a hoop, magic swirling behind her


I think this one is my favorite!


Plan is to start sharing the book, chapter by chapter, bit by bit, here on the blog. We’re mostly done with Deceiving Dragons, just tweaking the prologue, cleaning up the middle, and then adding the final chapters.


So stay tuned. Soon we’ll have some interesting content and some giveaways to go along with it.

“As a writer, I am just an actor in a play, telling a story that needs to be told.”
Rita Webb

“I like the dark; it is safer here, where no one can see me. The shadows caress me; friends hugging me.”
Rita Webb, Tears

“A rustle of wings and a hawk feather drifts down to me. Snatching it from the air, I look up into the trees, but nothing’s there. So I tuck the feather into my hair.

“What are you doing?”

My stomach leaps into my throat, and I jump up, stumbling backward, and fall on my butt in the middle of the path. In the tree above me, a teenage boy perches on a branch. He’s dressed in traditional deerskin breeches, a talon necklace around his neck, but rather than moccasins, his feet are bare. He is shirtless, and lean muscles cord his body.

His intense eyes capture my attention. They’re like golden fathomless pools. I could get lost in them.

“Don’t your feet get hurt, walking barefoot on the forest floor?” I ask.

“I rarely walk.” He drops down in front of me. His face is so close that I take a step back and thump into a tree. He leans toward me and sniffs. “You smell different. What are you?”

“I’m a girl.” I can’t take my gaze from his.

“No, humans stink. You smell…” He sniffs my hair and grins. “You smell good.”

“Is there a reason that you’re invading my space? I have somewhere to be.” My voice cracks.

He tugs one of my braids and winks at me. My pulse quickens, and my breath catches in my throat. His eyes study me with intensity, and he leans closer. Is he going to kiss me?”
Rita Webb, Transcendent: Tales of the Paranormal

Riz Hi Rita, thanks for adding me as a friend. Actually the ones you've recommended to me such as Hunger Games are one of my favorite series,
. take care! :)


The Flooze Hi, Rita. Best of luck on the anthology! I heard about it from Kyle.

There are so many great YA books out there! They offer a nice break from my usual reads as they're often more imaginative and seem to veer away from many of the formulas emerging in their adult counterparts.

Looking forward to reading your reviews and trolling through your lists!

Avery hello! wow thanks so much for adding me as a friend! You asked me how the Short Second Life of Bree Tanner si going and well to tell you the truth it was kind of interesting to see another perspective to a story i already love;but i don't really feel like it's anything more than a glorified fan fiction. A fun read but Stephenie could do better. Anyways i'm super excited to read Unlocked! it seems like a really interesting story!Thanks again:)\
