Rita Henuber

Rita grew up running the beaches of a barrier island on Florida's east coast. An island brat, she spent more time climbing weathered oaks and chasing alligators than playing with the dolls her family gave her. She married a Marine and feels fortunate to have lived many places and traveled to the states and countries she didn't live in.

Retired from government service, she moved back to that barrier island, where she writes contemporary women's fiction and suspense thrillers, weaving her experiences into her stories. Her heroes and heroines are either in the military or government service because she writes what she knows. Her father was in the Coast Guard and immediate family members served in every branch of the service. They ranked from private to admiral, and worked as desk jockeys, grunts, pilots, and everything in between. She's experienced the highs and lows of military and government life and is grateful for each experience.

Rita finds living on the island inspirational to writing: brilliant sunrises over the Atlantic; long walks on the beach having conversations with her characters; enjoying sunsets over the intercoastal waterway from the dock.

She reads or listens to two to three books a week (she prefers listening while doing housework so as not to waste time). She has no favorite author, she just loves a good story.
