Rita Golden Gelman Books & Biography


Rita Golden Gelman is the author of more than forty books for children and co-author of the "Which Way" series with Nancy Austin, under the joint pseudonym of R. G. Austin. In 1985, she decided to sell or give away all of the possessions that didn’t fit in her suitcases and focus on her love of travel and interest in other cultures. Since then, she has rarely stayed in one place for more than six months, visiting Bali, the Galapagos Islands, Israel, and Borneo, among other places. Her recent book, Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World, is a facinating account of her nomadic and adventurous life.
