Zita Harrison avidly read ghost stories as a child. In high school, she fell in love with "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte, and "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, a love that continued into adulthood. Her writing is inspired by Pablo Picasso's words: "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."
She is an ecstatic resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, where she lives with her husband. Her books, cover artwork and blogs can be found at zitaharrison.com or on Facebook at: https://bit.ly/2RwXrEV.

He discovers two other people have also suffered from bias all their lives, and the three form a tortured relationship which hurtles towards tragedy. But love prevails in the end.
