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 the now-defunct Glenfiddich Explorers, an adventure travel website run by the single-malt whisky company.
My first non-journalism publishing credit is for a poem titled “At the Rail” in TRACK LIFE: IMAGES AND WORDS by fine arts photographer Juliet Harrison via Paper Trail Press.
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 classes and pains to get it right. I don’t think I put this much planning into my wedding.
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!

My original plan was to keep this blog horse-free. Then, NYT best-selling and award-winning author C.J. Lyons called me out on it. Branding isn’t just for livestock In publishing, numbers speak volumes. Sales for books featuring horses tend to run low. The bottom-line advice from publishing professionals? “Play down the horses.” However, this blog […]
