About Me



Hi! I’m RISA C. PERIS. Thanks for stopping by.

I am trained in law, education, and social services/behavioral health, and am a published writer who is committed to sharing progressive news and information that matters to people who are committed to making the world a better and safer place.

I have dedicated my career to fighting for the rights of those abused, dispossessed, seeking asylum, and marginalized in society. This has spurred my desire to interview and disseminate information for public education and knowledge through a news platform that addresses social, cultural, and human rights issues both locally and globally. I strive for the truth and considers multiple perspectives in my work. My goal is the truth – uncut by partisan politics.

I have done extensive work in legal services in and after law school and has supported men, women, and children in achieving justice and fairness.

I have many stories to share helping my clients and ensuring the safety of my clients. Perhaps my most rewarding experience was working for Child Protective Services where every day I helped children seek stability, fairness, and, most of all, safety in their every day lives. This position galvanized me towards social and human rights issues. I learned the complexity of families and nearly every issue that affects families. All issues have several perspectives, and this has spurred her to create a website that seeks a balanced truth and not a partisan spoiler. The goal of Uncut Report is to inform, trigger thinking, and open debate.

Despite concerning myself with serious matters, I seek levity and creativity in life. I have published three fiction books including a picture book for children. I am currently at work on my third novel. I’ve had a fiction blog since 2017 (www.200wordstory.org), which is approaching a million views since its inception with a writing partner in Dublin, Ireland. I am also an abstract painter and photographer. I am learning the violin, cello, and piano and currently compose songs, sonatas, and am working on a chamber opera. I am an avid collector of books, dolls, miniatures, and Pez dispensers.

When not writing or working on other projects, she dreams of having a chicken sanctuary, a sloth as a walking partner, and a refrigerator full of cheesecake. She loves polka dots, mixing cocktails, and mysteries – from Sherlock Holmes to the quirkiness of quantum stuff. She comes from a land that is occasionally full of fire, floods, rumbling earth, famous people, and with a tendency to riot – California. However, she is now safely tucked away in Phoenix, Arizona and is considering buying a bird friend for her whimsical home.
