About Rissa

Rissa is a working artist living in Maryland. She loves early morning light filtering through stained glass, hot green tea in antique teacups, huge salads picked fresh from the garden and walks in the woods with her husband and their canine companion, Valerio.

She studied writing at New York University/Tisch School of the Arts and photojournalism at Western Kentucky University.

When she's not writing, Rissa finds her way to local theater and dance performances, loves baking vegan cupcakes, is the Senior Editor of Vegetarian Journal magazine, and as often as possible, gets lost in libraries.

 
 

Follow Rissa's free web series! Step into the world four years after an engineered virus crushes modern society. In this post-apocalyptic thriller, self-taught healer Mercy struggles through the treachery of uncivilized wilderness as she realizes there are pieces of the past she cannot run from, despite losing much of her memory in The Sweep. Meanwhile, unsettling forces discover that Mercy holds the key to restoring the threads of humanity that give people memories. Will she survive or will the cure be lost forever?
