Award–winning author, Rhonda Hopkins, has learned firsthand that truth is stranger than fiction. Her two decades of experience as an investigator provide her characters with a depth and realism that gives truth a run for its money. Having come in contact with the best and the worst that society has to offer, Rhonda’s imagination is filled with story ideas. Rhonda writes horror, suspense, romantic suspense, paranormal, and YA Urban Fantasy.

Rhonda also enjoys reading every bit as much as writing and tends to read a little of everything, but her personal favorites are: suspense/thrillers, romantic suspense, horror, paranormal, and YA. She grew up reading the Nancy Drew series and graduated to Stephen King novels by the time she was twelve.

I usually read 60+ books/year. BUT, I read really really fast and I read every night. I also don't watch TV (I binge watch one weekend every month or two. LOL) I don't finish reading about one in every ten books for various reasons -- either there are issues with the writing or the book just wasn't for me, even if technically flawless. However, I don't like making people feel bad by putting DNF as a tag, so I just don't review or rate.

I also don't review or rate if I can't give a book at least a 4 for the most part, although there have been exceptions. That's just my personal preference. I definitely believe in writer karma. ;-) I do appreciate those who leave reviews/ratings at all levels though. It's important to the overall book experience.

So, when you see me starting to read books back to back quickly, they were either really short or I didn't finish. I can usually finish a novel length book in two to three nights.

Thanks for asking the question! It made me realize how far behind I am on rating a bunch of books. LOL I'll need to take care of that this weekend. :-)

By the way, my apologies for not answering your last question about this --- I just now saw it. And thank you so much for the kind words about me being a gifted writer. You made my day! :-D

I see you're in Wisconsin. I have a friend, Stacey Joy Netzel, that writes books set there. I've never been, but her books make me want to visit some day.

I hope you're having a wonderful week!

During those times, I'll work on a different scene, a different manuscript, or I'll just take a break and let my brain work on it in the background. Something usually comes to me. And 3am seems to be a favorite time for my muse to show up. :-)(less)

It's going well, thank you. I'm about to release a novella and a short story. I'm just getting started publishing. Been writing for years for my own pleasure and learning the craft though.

Loved Killer Instinct by the way. I had no idea there were so many Charlie Fox books out there. Lots of good reading! :-)

Have a great weekend!
