To get to know the quirkiness of R. M. (Rikki) Strong, one only has to look to her namesake: The "Rikki" of 1972's Steely Dan's Song: "Rikki Don't Lose That Number." Now a Pastor's Kid four times over, she hasn't forgotten the fun-loving nature her parents, and the rest of her family and in-laws, instilled in her. After 13 years of public school and 3 years of Bible College, she was ready to take the world by storm... Um, yeah, sure... we'll go with that.
Her favorite genre to write is Young Adult, partially because she absolutely refuses to admit she's "getting on in years" and partially because, ever since graduating high school, she has been mentoring middle and high school students through various churches. There is always some story (or series) in the works, and she's always looking to branch out into new things.
She lives in Idaho with her husband, son, dog, cats, hamster, fish, and chickens.
