I love it when I can say one of my favorite writers is someone I know.
Rita Quillen is a native of Scott County, Virginia. She is a poet and novelist. Her work includes several collections of poetry, the novel Hiding Ezra, and contributions to a number of anthologies.
Rita was a semi-finalist for Poet Laureate of Virginia a few years ago. She has received numerous accolades for her work, including two Pushcart nominations.
She is a musician, has been a teacher, and is one of the coolest people I know.
Here's a link to some of her poems that are published by The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.
