 In a world where storytelling knows no bounds, one young author is carving out a niche all her own, blending the intoxicating allure of romance with the heart-pounding excitement of thrills and suspense. With a pen in hand and a passion for storytelling in her heart, Rhiannon McGuire is captivating readers with tales that transport them to worlds of love, danger, and intrigue.

McGuire, a native of Flatwoods Kentucky and a graduate of Russell High School, is a literary trailblazer whose unique voice and boundless imagination have catapulted her into the spotlight as one of the most exciting young authors of her generation. With each stroke of the pen and push of the keyboard, McGuire weaves a tapestry of emotions, drawing readers into a world where love blossoms amid danger, and every twist and turn leaves them breathless for more.


At just 25 years of age, McGuire has already done what many set out to do but very few accomplish- publishing not one but two books in under a year. McGuire’s love of literature began at a very early age. At twelve, McGuire and a close friend often wrote short fan fiction-type stories to read back and forth with one another. That’s when McGuire’s love of writing took flight.

After the birth of her son, McGuire expressed an interest to her husband about the possibility of writing a book. She was quickly met with nothing short of encouragement, so she embarked on her journey to becoming an author and sharing her talent with the literary world.

McGuire’s first book, entitled Wrenches, is a stand-alone spicy romance that keeps you on the edge of your seat with each page you turn. Wrenches came out on Jan. 10, 2024, and is available for purchase on Amazon as well as Amazon’s Kindle service.

Following the success of her debut novel, Rhiannon is poised to captivate readers once again with her latest literary offering, entitled No Funny Business, which became available for purchase on Feb. 14, 2024, on Amazon and the Amazon Kindle platform. No Funny Business is the perfect blend of romance and suspense that is sure to be a real page turner.

McGuire’s literary journey doesn't end with the publication of her second book — that’s just the beginning. To celebrate the launch of No Funny Business, McGuire will be hosting a book signing event on April 13, 2024, from noon to 2 p.m. at Broadway Books, which is located at 1537 Winchester Ave, Ashland Ky, 41101. The book signing is the perfect opportunity for everyone to meet the author, get their books signed, and share in the excitement of the occasion.

For McGuire, the book signing event is more than just a celebration of her own success — it's a chance to give back to the community that has supported her throughout her journey as an author. By sharing her stories and connecting with readers, she hopes to inspire others to pursue their own creative passions and embrace the power of storytelling to enrich their lives.

McGuire explained, “What I would say to anyone that is looking to get started in writing is to just not rush it. Take your time and write things down as they come to you. Start out by writing things in a note pad or in your phone’s notes. It can be something as small as a paragraph. If you are looking for inspiration, you can find it all around. Pinterest is a really great place to get inspired.”

As she prepares to embark on this new chapter of her literary career, McGuire is filled with gratitude for the opportunity to share her voice with the world. With her second book just recently launched and her first book signing event on the horizon, she is ready to take the literary world by storm and continue her journey as a rising star in the world of literature.

McGuire has plans of branching out to other genres with her writing and already has another book in the works. With each new book she releases, McGuire proves that age is no barrier to success and that the power of storytelling knows no bounds. Whether she's writing tales of romance or thrills, one thing is certain — Rhiannon McGuire is a rising star whose literary journey is only just beginning.
