Rilla is an artist of the word and paper sort. She writes for the joy of it and finds the craft painstaking and rewarding. A former FanFiction.net writer, most of her early work is still found online. (See below.)
Rilla began Dragonfly Prince, a serial Bildungsroman fantasy adventure, in 2009, which changed both her writing focus and her perception of herself–as a writer rather than a scribbler. She began working with other writers to hone her craft and developed a love for beta reading and editing. (She would eat manuscripts for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, if she could.)
Occupation: full-time mom & home educator (highschool), part-time freelancer/blog editor, beta, and novel editor
Religion: Christian (not Catholic, not Protestant)
Some of her works currently viewable online:
