Tabitha Rhys

Author of Love, Music, Madness

Tabitha Rhys is a writer with a passion for music, misfits, and subculture. LOVE, MUSIC, MADNESS is her debut novel. Although entirely a work of fiction, Love, Music, Madness is inspired by Tabitha’s adventures on the road with various independent bands and in DIY studios during the rise of the digital recording revolution.

Tabitha became entrenched in the independent music scene in the early 2000s when she moved from the Philadelphia subursbs to L.A.’s colorful Venice beach. There, she joined the first of what would be many bands.  At varying times, she called Los Angeles, San Diego and Seattle home. At other times, home was the car or van she lived in while performing shows at the dive du jour.

Currently, Tabitha lives in Riverside, CA, her adopted city. She is busy perfecting a song inspired by Love, Music, Madness and writing her next novel, which stars a punk rock superhero.​
