Call me Rica. I am a hermit, living in the lush mountains of Australia. I'm 10,000 words away from finishing my first completed novel. I write mystery/adventure stories, often set in the wildest places on earth. I also write anthropomorphic stories/fables. What tickles me is writing about nature and spiritual awakenings, shifts in consciousness, and characters that are powerful and steadfast. I hope to critique and have my writings critiqued, in order to learn and grow as a writer.
