Rosie was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas and now lives in Tecumseh, Kansas. She is currently the state Home Front Coordinator for Point Man Kansas, a non-profit organization that serves veterans and their families.
Rosie, married to Steve for over 50 years, is mom to three sons and their wives, and grandma to six. She is an antique dealer, loves to travel, and enjoys watching sports. Rosie and Steve also love to go pickin’ for stuff for her antique booth, their old barn and the M151A2 Army Jeep Steve is restoring.
Her true identity is found in her personal relationship with Jesus which is the foundation upon which her writing is based. Rosie loves to do creative art and lettering in her various journals and Bibles and sharing the personal and relevant truths she is learning!
