Rhonda Parrish is my Woman In Horror today! Rhonda is a fantastic author, and she also does a lot of editing, as you can see on her Amazon Author Page. Rhonda's Facebook page will keep you current with what she is involved in. https://www.facebook.com/Rhonda-Parrish-913973368682611/timeline. Her latest claim to fame is D is for Dinosaur, which is Book 4 in the Alphabet Anthologies. She did a fantastic editing job with this tome.
For the fourth installment of Rhonda Parrish’s Alphabet Anthologies, contributors were challenged to write about dinosaurs. The resulting twenty-six stories contain widely different interpretations of the dinosaur theme and span the spectrum from literal to metaphoric.
Within these stories -- set in alternative histories, far-flung futures and times just around the corner -- dinosaurs whimper and waste away or roar and rage. People can be dinosaurs, as can ideas, fictions and flesh. Knitted dinosaurs share space with ghostly, genetically engineered and even narcotic ones.
Teenagers must embrace their inner dinosaurs in order to find peace and belonging, a dying woman duels a God in a far future city that echoes aspects of our past, an abused wife accompanies her husband on a hunt for an ancient power and finds more than she could ever have imagined and a girl with wonderful magical powers stumbles across the bones of a giant long-dead lizard. And so much more!
If this is Book 4 in the series, you know there must be another three. And, there are. All of them are up on Rhonda's Amazon Author page.
Going farther back, we have Alphanasian Stories, a charming genre blend of sci-fi/fantasy/ and horror.
Three of Rhonda Parrish's beloved Aphanasian stories brought together in one collection for the first time!
A Love Story: Z'thandra, a swamp elf living with the Reptar, discovers a human near the village. When she falls in love with him, she faces the most difficult choice of her life, a decision that will affect the Reptar for generations.
Lost and Found: Xavier, the escaped subject of a madman's experiments, and Colby, a young lady on a mission to save her brother, must combine their efforts to elude capture and recover the magical artifact that will save Colby's brother before it's too late.
Sister Margaret: A vampire hunter and a half-incubus swordsman are hired by a priestess to kill the undead pimp that is extorting, torturing and murdering vulnerable girls.

"Rhonda Parrish is a shapeshifter with talents to match her every incarnation- magpie tenacity for picking the shiniest submissions, nightingale notes for crafting tales, and bright, feline eyes for seeking out her photographic subjects. She balances on the knife-edge of darkness and light, a sorceress of both realms." - Sara Cleto
