- I make my home in Regina where I live with my husband and one opinionated Irish Terrier. Opinionated? Well, he had the temerity to acquire his own interview for what I considered my book! Actually, it was a book tour and a fun way to put a spin on the classic interview.
But back to the books, the Saskatchewan prairie and its history was the inspiration for my first book. But the harsh prairie winter and a dose of wanderlust is my motivation to get out and see the world and that, of course, inspires more stories.
The scenes of foreign lands play vividly through my mind long after I return home. It is in these memories that I plunk my hapless characters who are soon leading me through one adventure after another. From another country to another era, the world is full of the unique and the unusual and it is a joy to find it, live it and write about it.
I primarily write romantic fiction and while I've written and published an historic and a medieval paranormal, my preferred genre, and what I currently write, is romantic suspense. For more, visit my website at www.ryshiakennie.com
