Rita Juanita Pike is the granddaughter of aviatrix, Jerrie Mock, the first woman to pilot an airplane around the world. Rita has taken inspiration from her grandmother’s life and flight and pursued many of her own dreams in theatre, podcasting, and novel writing and fulfilled the dream of becoming a full-time writer as her day job in between Seminary classes. She’s happily married to Matt, and faithfully serves the ornery fluffy kitten queen, Lady Stardust.
Rita writes novels in several genres, including contemporary rock ‘n roll (under the pseudonym Juanita Millhouse), Christian romance, historical fiction, and the occasional fantasy piece. She’s also got some cookbooks to her name.
