RITA FORSYTHE has lived in all four corners of the United States and now resides with her husband on the island of Maui, Hawaii. She has a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Gonzaga University and when she isn’t watching Zags basketball or chasing wild chickens out of her vegetable patch, she writes fiction and plays with paint.

The author writes: 

I’ve always had a vivid imagination. For as long as I can remember I either had a library book, a number 2 pencil, or a paintbrush in my hand. These tools were my magic carpet, flying me to interesting people and foreign places. 


After a decades-long career as a public-school principal and university director I finally had the luxury to dedicate myself full time to the creative arts. Since then, I’ve published fictional novels and dabbled in watercolor painting.
