A lifelong fan of speculative fiction, Rita Vetere combines elements of the supernatural and suspense to steer her tales down a dark and twisting path. She paints her writing with a broad brush in terms of genre and categorizes it under the umbrella of dark fiction, which leaves her free to explore new avenues and ideas. A recurring theme is the conflict between good and evil, and it's always a coin toss as to which side will prevail.
Born in the UK and raised in Toronto, Canada, Rita maintains a longstanding love affair with Italy, a country she has traveled extensively and which feels like home to her.
Rita currently resides in lovely Niagara Falls, Canada with her husband of many years and their dog. She would probably not be able to write without the dog, who never fails to recognize the genius of her conversation and ideas.
