Colby R. Rice

Biography

Dystopian Sci-fi, Sci-fi Thriller, & Urban Fantasy Novelist. Screenwriter. Game Writer & Narrative Designer. Film Producer. Globetrotter. Action Junkie. Rebel Ragdoll.

A shameless nerd and bookworm since the age of five, Colby R Rice is the author of GHOSTS OF KOA, the first dual-volumed novel in The Books of Ezekiel, a dystopian-urban fantasy decalogy.

She was an Air Force BRAT born in Bitburg Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and came to the States at the age of one. Colby bounced around a lot, but finally settled in Los Angeles, where she could at last deal with her addictions to writing, creative entrepreneurship, motorcycles, and traveling.

Now, armed with a mound of animal crackers and gallons of Coca-Cola, Colby takes on the fiction writing trinity (novel writing, screenwriting, and game writing) in a fight to the death!

Current projects include: the second, five-volume mega-novel in the Books of Ezekiel series, the first novel in a middle grade SFF detective series, the first novel in an adult sci-fi thriller series, development of her first sci-fi thriller film, and the growth of her production house, Rebel Ragdoll.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Definitely J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, SD Perry, SM Reine, Dashiell Hammett, and Raymond Chandler. All of these authors have heavily influenced my perspective and writing style, for sure! Still, I have to admit, I'm sort of an SD Perry fan girl. Her writing is phenomenal, and has been the most major influence in my writing. When I read her Resident Evil novelization series, I KNEW I'd found my writing voice. :-)
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Food. Lol! And writing, of course, but that's always a little harder and not always immediately gratifying, depending on what I have to do. Asses and elbows, though, am I right? It's the only way more writing ever gets done! :-)
