Thanks so much for coming to visit!

I’m Andrea Rinard, a veteran high school English teacher whose midlife luxury is writing. I’m a native Floridian who wears shoes against my will and has mastered the art of sunscreen application and hurricane preparation. I live in Tampa with my three young adult kids and my high school Prom date.

I’m currently finishing my speculative young adult manuscript, Afterworld, which won the 2020 Key West Literary Seminar’s Marianne Russo Award for a work in progress by an emerging author.

You can link to my published short stories, poetry, and a book review, and I also have a collection of pieces inspired by my work as a teacher that I’ve published on Medium.

If you’d like to contact me, please use the “Want to Get in Touch?” page.
