Rita Villa


I have been creating things for as long as I can remember. Everything from paintings and sculptures to novels. Creativity is such an important part of my life that I can't imagine not getting up every day with some artistic project to do. Writing a novel had always been a goal of mine but I never actually sat down to do it until 2007 when I wrote The Cat Factory. After that I was hooked. Next came It's All About The Gravy and Ripples.
For years I studied spirituality and had just finished getting a masters in the Paranormal, therefore I wrote about spiritual transformations. My goal was to help people. It always has been. And I truly hope any of my stories will help you, if not in a spiritual way, then just to enjoy.
After years of writing about spirituality I wanted to try something different. My friends tease me and say that I've gone over to the dark side. Not really. Though my newest novel, The Contraption, does explore the dark side of human nature it also brings in my love for the paranormal and some really strong spiritual ideas, like watch what you think about, it may come true. Writing The Contraption was so much fun and I hope anyone who reads it will have fun, get scared, wonder and be immersed in something new and different. After all, that's really what it's all about.
Like my stories, the paranormal has many sides. There's the happy, spiritual side. The realm of miracles, angels, life after death, hope, healing, wonder and love. On the other side of the paranormal there's mystery, intrigue, and the unknown. It brings in magic and psychics and witches and black cats. It makes you wonder and question. I guess that's what I love about it most. In the end the paranormal is something that can never be proven to exist or not to exist. Whether it lifts you up and makes you feel good or it scares the heck out of you, hopefully it entertains you!
