About

My name is Rhonda Stoltzfus and I’m a Northern California native with a degree in Horticulture from Iowa State University.  I am a master bee keeper and Iowa fruit farm owner on permanent sabbatical in Hawaii.  I moved to the Aloha State 8 years ago to finally get warm and to support my partner in his passion for biotechnology.

I’ve always enjoyed writing.  When I left for college I was the “Foreign Correspondent” for a satire paper called The Flying Penguin.  Apparently they considered Iowa a strange place.  After college I discovered the joy of setting up and conducting experiments and was published in The Journal of Plant Nutrition with the riveting paper: Effect of increasing root-zone temperature on growth and nutrient uptake by ‘gold star’ muskmelon plants.  It was a real page turner.
