RJ Plant is a Birmingham, AL native and recent Williamsburg, VA transplant. After playing the famed “Struggling College Student” game, she came away from the University of Alabama at Birmingham holding a BA in English with a Creative Writing concentration and a Professional Writing minor. Shortly after graduating, she became an editor at Birmingham-based Highlands Publications overseeing, writing for, and editing Modern WorkTruck Solutions magazine.
Her interest in genetics, molecular biology, and psychology inspired the creation of her first novel, Rise and Run. Needing a little background knowledge in genetics, RJ studied hard and ended up with a certificate of completion in Useful Genetics from UBC.

When RJ isn’t reading or writing, she can be found practicing the violin, cooking whatever pops into her head, or hitting the gym.
