Rita Bennet was born in 1959. She spent her earliest childhood
on the Bay of Bengal as her parents were working as missionaries in
India at that time. During the time of her school days and her
youth she grew up in an educational environment as her father
taught English and religion at a college of education.
Rita has always had a fascination for stories, but it was not until
her late twenties that she really began writing. For many years she
did not publish anything. Instead she enjoyed what she calls a
"secret writing life" besides her regular job as an English teacher
at a comprehensive school.
The target group for Rita's writings ranges from very small
children to adults.
Rita is still working as a teacher, but today she teaches English
at an Adult Education Centre.
