AUTHOR RHONDA R EICHMAN
Writer. Author. Thinker. Storyteller.
Welcome to my website. As a professional Author, I aim to create a better understanding of the world and our place in it — a mission which has cast me in many different roles: author, artist, and creative innovator.

I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth writing about. I am a curious and proactive Author, interested in preserving the foundations set by classical literature and adapting them to Historical fiction.
WHO I AM
Even as a young child I would conjure up stories with my imagination, sharing them with anyone who was around to listen. I’ve developed my storytelling and writing quite a bit since then, but the essence of creativity and entertainment I began with as a kid has remained a major influence on my work. I’ve been writing professionally since 2000 and have no intention of slowing down anytime soon. Get in touch with me if you’ve got any comments, questions, suggestions, or just want to say hello. I’d be more than happy to hear from you.
THE FRONTIER SETTLERS SERIES
The frontier was settled by hard working, faithful people who used all their strength and resources to tame the new land of America. The books in this series show the reader what life was really like in the 1800's with fictional characters placed in real places like Kansas City, Missouri, and Mud Creek, which later became Abilene, Kansas. Each character faces his or her own trials and some lean on faith to make it through while some do not. All books in the series are good, clean Christian reads.
In Book One, Bargain On The Prairie, Annette finds herself stranded on the prairie of the Kansas Territory. With her fiancé dead, she knows she will not be able to drive the covered wagon over the mountains until spring. Alone and terrified, there is only one choice...Cole.
Cole knows he can help Annette survive but he doesn't know if she can fit into the rough life living on a ranch requires. In spite of his doubts, he offers her a bargain in trade for food and shelter.
Can two independent people strike a bargain on the prairie and survive the Kansas winter together?
In Book Two, Horse Thief Canon, Ellie and Thomas break through personal battles to settle their section of the frontier. Ellie is strong willed and determined, the two skills that made her what she is, a successful woman factory owner in Atlanta. Even though she has achieved financial independence, she finds herself searching for something more and takes a journey back home to the prairies of Kansas.
The prairie is dangerous after the Civil War with Indians and Quantrill’s men, so she hires two bodyguards. Thomas is a detective for the Pinkerton Detective Agency and exceptionally good at what he does, but Ellie is everything he ever dreamed of.
Will he give up a stellar career to follow Ellie back to Atlanta? He must convince her they could have a beautiful life together. Will she choose love or her business success?
