Rita Feinstein once aspired to be a space wolf or dragon princess, but has found her passion in writing. Hopelessly eclectic, she writes middle-grade and adult fantasy, young adult contemporary and thrillers, short stories, and poetry. No matter the genre, her protagonists are primarily concerned with opening an escape hatch in reality and jetting off to more fantastical destinations. Her fiction is represented by Savannah Brooks at the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.

 Rita received her BA in English from Wells College and her MFA in Poetry from Oregon State University. She lives with her husband, who is a lawyer, and her dog, who is not.
