Colby R. rice, here!
WELCOME TO NA NOIR(E)!
This site is NOT about me, my dear dark-hearted readers and authors. It’s about YOU! Buuut, since you asked… 😉
I’m a dystopian, sci-fi thriller, urban fantasy, epic (urban) fantasy, and crime noir(e) novelist.
I also moonlight as a screenwriter, film director, game writer & narrative designer, globetrotter, and kitchen ninja.
And I have afro puffs. (I do, I swear!)
And I like taro pudding. MM!

A shameless nerd and bookworm since the age of five, Colby R. Rice is the author of The Given and The Taken, the first two novels in The Books of Ezekiel, a dystopian sci-fi and urban fantasy mega-novel decalogy. She was an Air Force BRAT born in Bitburg Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and came to the States at the age of one. Colby bounced around a lot but finally settled in Tucson, where she could at last deal with her addictions to writing, legends & mythology, filmmaking, creative entrepreneurship, motorcycles, and traveling.
Now, armed with a mound of animal crackers and gallons of Coca-Cola, Colby takes on the fiction writing trinity (novel writing, screenwriting, and game writing) in a fight to the death!
A former (recovering) PhD student and research methodologist, she is now somehow an MFA student in the Generative Dramaturgy program at the University of Arizona, where she is studying for her third degree, diving into her eighth language (Russian), and doing cool theatre stuff (like Combat for the Stage)!
Current creative projects include: the next six novels in The Books of Ezekiel series, the first novel in a New Adult cyberpunk series, the first novel in an urban fantasy crime noir(e) series, the development of her first horror feature film, and the growth of her media f’empire-in-progress, Rebel Ragdoll, LLC. Stay tuned to her website http://colbyrrice.com for updates on her creative projects!

Why NA NOIR(E)? WHY DARK AND GRITTY? For me, that’s where life is: in the gray areas and moral ambiguities, but it’s especially in those dark places that we’re not allowed to talk or think about in civilized society.
