Rhiannon Held writes urban fantasy, along with space opera and weird western (as R. Z. Held). She lives in Seattle, where she works as an archaeologist for an environmental compliance firm. At work, she mostly uses her degree for copy-editing technical reports; in writing, she uses it for cultural world-building; in public, she'll probably use it to check the mold seams on the wine bottle at dinner.

Edited to add: the fourth book, WOLFSBANE, will be out Fall 2015!(less)

I started with some short stories in the world of my SILVER series, and I'm working up to publishing the fourth book in that series, WOLFSBANE. It will be out Fall 2015. I'm very excited to be able to get it out to people, so I'm making sure I know how to do everything well with getting it copy-edited, formatted, and having a cover made.(less)

More books by Rhiannon Held…

I’ve been looking ahead to the coming year, and with one novel at the discovery draft stage (a space opera) and one at the final revision stage (a weird western) as well as numerous short stories and novellas at all stages of development… I think it’s a year to focus on getting words down rather than on cons and being on the internet. I will still be attending a few local cons, which my appeara...
