My name is Rhetta Akamatsu and I am a freelance writer, author, and editor.
I have written a number of books, including the popular non-fiction The Irish Slaves, the lavishly illustrated Sex Sells: Women in Photography and Film, and Haunted Marietta, which was published by The History Press as part of its Haunted Marietta series.
In addition to the paranormal, I love blues music and I have a book called Tain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do: Women Blues Singers Old and New. I am the Blues Examiner for Atlanta at examiner.com as well.
I am the mother of two and grandmother to six (including a step-grandson.) I live in Marietta, GA with my husband and two cats.
I hope to share with you exciting news about all my projects in the days to come!
