About Rosalind Noonan
Rosalind Noonan grew up in suburban Maryland and enjoyed being part of a large family. “With my four siblings, Saturday mornings were a blast,” she says. “There was festival seating on the living room floor as we tuned into cartoons and passed the Sugar Pops.” She caught the writing bug in second grade when she won first place in a poetry contest. “The prize was twenty dollars,” she recalls. “That was big bucks for a second grader. I thought I was going to Disneyland.” Wooed by the taste of fame and fortune, she kept writing. While attending Wagner College in Staten Island she lived in Harbor View Hall, a dormitory that offers an inspiring view of New York Harbor, including the Statue of Liberty and the southern tip of Manhattan. After graduation she worked in New York City as an editor and copywriter for various book publishers. She has studied writing for screen and theater at The New School. She currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two children. <Readmore>
