About Rhonda Strehlow (Green Bay, Wisconsin Author)
Rhonda Strehlow is an auction aficionado. Her home is filled with auction treasures. The Horton Auction series was conceived while attending an old farm auction. The barn still smelled of hay and cows. The wide front porch with it's rusted dinner bell brought to mind all of the people who had lived and loved in that worn building. It was clearly a story waiting to be written.
The Horton Auction series begins with One More Night, followed by Separate Lives. She is hard at work on the next two auction books, Crystal Moon and These Days. Rhonda's first published book, Second Act, is loosely based on an accidental encounter. Additionally, she has been researching a non-fiction leadership book for years. Completing that book is on the top of her bucket list.
Rhonda facilitates the Green Bay Area Writer Guild. The members of that group are her inspiration and support.
