Biography Rhiannon Benedict

A child performer, Rhiannon was raised with a passion for language and music. A veteran of stage and screen, her true love for the printed word drove her to study English Literature and Creative Writing at Briercrest College and the University of Winnipeg.

An award-winning short-story writer and published poet, she continues to find new ways to express herself in print. Combining her background in film (in front of and behind the camera) along with her writing skills, she is a regular contributor to Entertainment Insiders (einsiders.com), reviewing as many DVDs as she can get her hands on. Her background in Education leads her to a particular fondness for documentaries and educational programs, but oddball British comedies and thrillers never need to fear neglect on Rhiannon’s watch.

While she continues to sing and act, her writing has taken her to new heights. Keep an eye out for the new film EVER 7 (now in post-production), based on her chilling short story ″I think I’m seven″.
