Rita A. Popp writes light and twisty mysteries and other entertaining fiction. Two of her short stories appear in the Sisters in Crime Guppy anthologies Fish Out of Water and Fishy Business. She introduced amateur sleuth Bethany Jarviss in Stiletto Heels in the e-zine Mysterical-E. Bethany takes on another murder case in Rita’s debut novel, The First Fiancée: A Bethany Jarviss Mystery. Rita has worked as a university writer and editor, community college instructor, and for three newspapers and a public relations agency. She has volunteered as a literacy tutor, literary journal staffer, animal sanctuary writer and photographer, and book sorter for her local library’s used book sales. She and her husband divide their time between their home in Colorado and cabin in the New Mexico mountains. Those two states and Rita’s home state, Iowa, inspire much of her fiction. Watch for her story Passing on the Farm, releasing in spring 2023 in The Wild Rose Press’s Jelly Beans and Spring Things series. For more on this author, visit Rita’s website at https://ritapopp.com.
