Rhea is a Vancouver, BC writer known best for her short stories, but she has now moved on to novels! (Although, she continues to write stories for a break from the novel writing!)
Her very first short story "Chronos' Christmas" was nominated for the Canadian Aurora Award. Another short story, "Shadow Hunter" (a.k.a. Duty Free) was nominated for the preliminaries for the Nebula award, (as was a reprint of Chronos' Christmas). She recently completed her MFA in creative writing at UBC. She also attended SFU where she got her Communications and teaching degree. She supports her writing by teaching high school English and Art. Rhea participated in the Clarion West writers' workshop and the Kansas Writers' workshop (James Gunn and Kij Johnson) and has been writing ever since.
Many of her short stories and poetry have appeared in the Canadian Tesseracts anthologies from Edge Press. Her poetry has been nominated for the Rhysling award . She has had multiple honorable mentions for her horror stories in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year. Look for an excerpt of her first novel "The Final Catch" at Wattpad.com.

The Shadow Hunter offers a perfect short afternoon escape into another world. The imagery of futuristic creatures and the alien environment are quickly and beautifully woven with poetic verse. This sci-fi short story leaves you begging for more and maybe a hint of a larger story in the works. Another Smashwords gem to add to your list of reads.
