Susan Rose Simms, aka Rosie Simms, knew she wanted to be a writer at the tender age of eight. Her early dictated stories were typed by her 3rd grade teacher and put on shirt cardboard. Once she had her first taste of being published, she was hooked!
Rosie graduated from UCLA with a degree in English and an elementary teaching credential. She earned her master's degree in speech and language at Cal State Northridge.
