Something About Me and My Book:
I work as a freelance writer and editor. My recent novel, "Painting The Invisible Man," is a contemporary historical fiction that explores the complex dynamics of an Italian family on the fringes of the Mafia.

What gives this story an added twist is that it is based on true events. In 2001, a keying error led me to discover dozens of news articles written in the 1990s that referenced my father. This would not have been all that strange except for the fact he died in 1976. The headline that caught my attention mention how the FBI had audio tapes of a mob enforcer talking about a 20-year murder he "got away with." The "enforcer" on the tapes was acquitted of my father's murder.

Author Uses Personal Experience To Write Novel

Rita Schiano, author of Painting The Invisible Man and Sweet Bitter Love, is an author, speaker and free-lance writer. "When I was a child, every Sunday morning my grandmother would rip the list of spelling bee words from the newspaper and my task that week would be to look up the words in the dictionary, learn their meaning, their pronunciation, how to spell them, and to use them in a sentence during the week," says Rita. "This once dreaded exercise led to my love of words."
