Rita Schunk is a Wisconsin native writing life’s real stories. She grew up the middle child of a large farm family — straddling the line between peacemaker and instigator. After an extensive career in information technology, she continues her love of learning through investigating experiences of life, discovering what can be learned from these stories, and sharing the result. Rita lives with her husband and has a married son. Her passion for discovery compels her to a variety of handcrafting hobbies. She gifts most of her knitted creations to others – often to total strangers.
