possible bio pic-FiestaWelcome! I’m Rhonda Brinkmann—novelist, writer, published author, technical and educational writer, freelancer, and editor. I wear a lot of hats! Growing up, I never knew I could make a living by writing. Now I am making my living that way…and some days I still don’t believe it. Click on the links below to learn more about my writing adventures.

I like to think I’m a friendly, people-oriented individual. For over a decade, I was a writer and editor with multiple Texas state agencies. I now own a freelance writing and editing business called Wordsmiths4u. In my role as freelance writer and editor, I work alone or in collaboration with other authors, writers, editors, and subject matter specialists.

I have a new mystery series planned for publication in 2018. The first novel, Welcome to Buffalo Beach, introduces a father-daughter amateur sleuth duo. See the Fiction tab for updates.

Talking cover-for postingI write and publish a tips series called Speed Rede: Tips to a Fuller Life.  I hope the pamphlets will help people who are facing new chapters in their lives or searching for ways to begin a new adventure. Find out more about my Speed Rede series and my events page (RhondasOpps) by clicking on my Nonfiction tab.

Through publication of event articles, I have a chance to let folks know what’s happening around the Brazos Valley of Texas and beyond so they can take advantage of the many opportunities for entertainment. I enjoy finding entertainment options and keeping people informed about them.

In addition to creating my own fiction and nonfiction publications, I often collaborate with other authors to improve their material.

calendar shot-cropped-bwI’ve been writing and making presentations about writing for years. As a part of the Texas Commission on the Arts statewide literature initiative, I was on call as a touring artist with the Austin Writers’ League (now Writers League of Texas) from 1994 to 1998.  I continue to enjoy writing and working with writers, and am grateful I have the opportunity to make it my professional life.
