Welcome to my “I’m Legit” site. It’s the hub of my online activities – but you know that already.
I’m the creator/curator/wrangler/janitor of the online horses-and-culture magazine/blog known as The Horsey Set Net . I’ve also contributed to Glenfiddich Explorers, an adventure travel website run by the single-malt whisky company.
What eats up a lot of my mental energy is fiction, especially crime fiction. I’m working on the first book in a mystery series set on the fringe of Kentucky’s horse country. I’m taking a lot of pains and classes to get it right. I don’t think I put this much planning into my wedding.
Believe it or not, my first non-journalism publishing credit will be in poetry, perhaps later this year, but more about that project when the pub date approaches. I don’t want to spill all the beans.
What you’ll see here on this site
Changes. Count on new links and publications, along with helpful tips about being a blogger and a writer, along with some surprises. That’s another way of saying, I’m working it out as I go along.

Bio (Pardon the stiff third person narration. I’ve been told it’s expected for bios.)
Rhonda grew up in rural Kentucky about five houses away from a tobacco field.
She’s worked as a sports broadcast technician for a national TV network, a photojournalist and as a newspaper general assignment reporter who still covered a lot of “cops and courts” along with school programs.
She lives in central Connecticut with her husband and their pet cats in a hillside grove of oak trees. She enjoys riding horses and doing more research than she should.
Thanks for visiting!

Voice coach Blake Shelton is always on the hunt for country music “storytellers.” Shelton’s wife Miranda Lambert has a song she co-wrote with Travis Howard that [...]

You’re an author at an event. You see someone wearing a headset, perhaps with a microphone, sitting off to the side with some boxy electronic equipment with dials or slides. That person may be a radio announcer, especially if he or she has media credentials. He or she may “doing a remote broadcast” and wondering [...]
