Risa Nyman

Welcome to my website!

Hope you enjoy your stay here and that you'll come back often for a visit to see what I've been up to on my wild author's ride. 

My path to creative writing is unusual. One might say I'm a late-bloomer. Just shows we never know what directions our lives may take. I fell in love with writing and can't stop.

Spooked by a Suspicion

 

"Any teen who has faced a parent's remarriage and questions about their identity and moral compass will readily relate to Rocky's situation. They will be intrigued by the mystery components as he unravels." 

     ~D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review ​

"The conflict between Rocky and Ted is a relatable one, and the boy's wild flights of imagination will likely entertain young readers. A fast-paced middle-grade novel that successfully provides a lesson about trust."
      ~Kirkus Reviews

"A fast paced sequel with mystery, drama, and heart. Nyman's storytelling skills are complemented by her keen ability to paint realistic characters."
