Rhondi A. Vilott Salsitz, born in Phoenix, Arizona is a writer of science fiction, fantasy, and mystery novels.
She writes under the names Emily Drake, Anne Knight, Elizabeth Forrest, Charles Ingrid, Rhondi Vilott Salsitz, R.A.V. Salsitz, Rhondi Vilott, Jenna Rhodes, and Rhondi Greening.
Emily Drake is my pen name for young adult fantasy, chosen because drake is another naming for dragon and I thought my readers would appreciate it. A book was my magic carpet to adventure in my years growing up, and I try to pass on the tradition. I’m a full time writer and have raised a blended family: his, mine and our children, any of whom can, have been and will be used as characters in my books.
Other pen names include Charles Ingrid for “soft science” fiction, Elizabeth Forrest and Anne Knight for suspense thrillers, and R.A.V. Salsitz for fantasy for readers of all ages. My office is shared with a black cocker spaniel and a long-haired Siamese mix cat who tolerate each other and vie to see who gets the cozy space under my desk…him, her, or my feet which belong there! I’ve published more than forty novels with similar office mates urging me on, so it’s no wonder my books are populated with animals of various kinds. It is the hope of all of us involved in the endeavor that you, the reader, will enjoy our imaginations.
