nDash Writer Profile for Rita Pike

About Me

I began writing fiction as a 13-year-old inspired by the music I loved and my father, another writer. At the age of 19, I decided I wanted to go for publication and sought out interviews at a local event where I met several Olympic medalists and sold my first magazine articles. I have been writing for magazines, blogs, individual clients, and agencies ever since. I've written on a wide range of topics, though my preferred topics have become travel, pet care, fitness & health, gluten-free topics, food & nutrition, faith, music, film, television, and theatre.
