About Zita

Zita Christian is both a romance writer, wedding officiant, and certified Life-Cycle Celebrant. She brings "Happily Ever After" to life, one couple at a time. How? By using her skill as a romance writer, Zita pens a personal love story for the couples she marries and incorporates the story into the ceremony. She is a proud supporter of marriage equality. Her weddings have been featured in the “Real Weddings” blogs of Wedding Wire, The Knot, and Connecticut Bride. In June 2014, Wedding Industry Experts named Zita "Most Popular New Celebrant/​Officiant in the United States."

Her historical romance novels, Band of Gold, First and Forever, and Just a Miracle, were published as paperback originals by Harper and reissued in 2013 by Samhain Publishing as ebooks.

Zita also co-authored the play, Warriors Don't Cry, with Scott Galbraith. The play was produced by The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford and enjoyed its second national tour in 2014. Warriors Don't Cry is based on the memoir of the same title by Dr. Melba Pattillo Beals, one of the Little Rock Nine who integrated Central High School in 1957.

In 2008, Zita organized several writers to complete a manuscript on grieving when the author and dear friend Liz Aleshire suffered a fatal heart attack. The book, "101 Ways You Can Help: How to Offer Comfort and Support to Those Who Are Grieving" was published by Sourcebooks.

For over ten years, Zita has hosted and produced two, national award-winning television shows (Page 1 and Full Bloom) that air on public access channels in CT and MA and on YouTube. A third show, Weddings with Zita, will launch in August 2014, and feature interviews on topics related to weddings. Soon, all three shows will live on the network ZitaTV.
