Rosemarie Brennan juggles careers as a writing teacher and an author. She lives in Brighton, Michigan with her three children, Ashley, Jason and Adam, who have taught her many important lessons, including that everything isn't black and white. Willow was the first collaboration with her sister, Denise Brennan-Nelson. When they are not writing together, Rosemarie and Denise are having fun presenting writing and creativity workshops and retreats. Rosemarie's diverse past includes stints as a birth doula, coffeehouse owner, and legal secretary. She is seldom without paper and pen.
