Zita Harrison


Zita Harrison, writer, artist, is a lover of Gothic literature. Dark personalities and settings, tortured romance, the supernatural. As a child she avidly read ghost stories. In high school she fell in love with Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. For her masters in English literature, she did a thesis on Gothic literature vs. the work of Pablo Picasso, who once said: “A work of art must make a man react, feel strongly … He must be seized by the throat and shaken up … he has to be made aware of the world he’s living in and for that he must first be jolted out of it.” Zita Harrison writes with this very purpose in mind.

Owl Manor – the Dawning is the first of a trilogy of Gothic Romantic Suspense novels she is working on. Next in the installment is Owl Manor – Abigail.

She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and can be found on www.zitaharrison.com
