Meet the Author

Raised in southeastern North Carolina, Rhonda has lived in Charleston, South Carolina since 1980. She married her high school sweetheart over 30 years ago and together they have a son and two beautiful granddaughters.

Rhonda was a stay-at-home mom until her son began school. She then became active in PTA and as a substitute teacher. Encouraged by her husband, Rhonda completed her undergraduate work at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC, where she graduated with a BS in Elementary Education in1994. Rhonda then went on to receive her National Board certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist and received her MA in English from a joint program with The College of Charleston and the Citadel in 2005.

Rhonda teaches fifth grade in North Charleston, SC. She is also an adjunct professor for the English Department at Trident Technical College. Edwards is a Fellow of the Charleston Area Writing Project (CAWP), having received this honor the summer of 1994. Being a part of the writing project was one of the best summers Rhonda ever spent. She was able to nurture her love for writing among a supportive encouraging group of fellow teachers/writers.

Whether on the beach at Pawleys or at Huntington Beach State Park, South Carolina, Rhonda fills many hours walking the shoreline, searching for shells, looking and checking on loggerhead turtle nests, and enjoying the calming beauty of the ocean.
