About Ella


Born and raised in Detroit, Ella B. Rite envisioned a life as a jet-setting author. She’d regale audience members with her beautiful stories, a wonderful grasp of vocabulary and an undying compassion for her many, many…MANY adoring fans.

Life snickered, called her friend Reality and together they dared Ella to navigate a world of unexplained phenomenon:  the missing mortgage payment of 2002, the roof lightning strike of 2004,and the missing car ashtray change of 2008.  Ella may have lost a piece of her mind during these events.  Maybe more than a little.

Today, Ella is happy and somewhat healthy with grown sons and a dream to become an author.  She lives in Virginia and enjoys reading, people watching and trying new things like knitting.
