Howdy! My name is Marsha Riti and I am a freelance illustrator based out of Austin, Texas, currently working with Little Simon (an imprint of Simon & Schuster) on a chapter book series titled The Critter Club.

When I’m not having a bowl of Flap Cerealâ„¢ with my good friend Duck, I enjoy cooking and cleaning, hanging out with my husband, tipsy “porch time” with close friends, buying mid-Century furniture, watching trashy TV shows, and cussing.

I’m an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and I’m also a co-founder and member of a female illustrator collective called the Girllustrators.
