R.L Haas has been writing since she knew what a pen was. She wrote her first book at the age of six, and while it didn't take off beyond her mother's box of treasures, it lit a fire in her for writing books and telling stories.

Her non-fiction work has appeared in such locations as The Kitchn, Literary Orphans, WearYourVoice, The Perpetual You, and SheLoves Magazine.

She lives in between cornfields in the middle of the Midwest. She resides with her husband, her two daughters, a big dog with two different colored eyes + a little dog who will eat anything, and a pile of "to-read" books a mile high.

I am wildly irked that this is the official first book of 2019. Wildly so. I’ve read it before in business classes. It’s one of the most degrading nonsensical books, an exhausting metaphor that basically screams, “if you fail or have hardship, you’re ...more

“I finally realized that I had to embrace the madness, let it transform me instead of letting it define me.

....

"You, my ferocious girl, are embracing the madness. Lean into it, won't ya?”
R.L. Haas, Portals of Water and Wine

“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
C.S. Lewis

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
