About Rochelle

Rochelle Ransom has been writing stories since she was a young girl. She grew up in a small rural town in western New York with little access to TV. This led to an overzealous imagination and a memorable and cherished childhood. Her sister was her first reader and critic. She’d find Rochelle’s stories sitting around the house in random notebooks and read them, only to discover they usually had no ending.

After graduating from Syracuse University’s S. I. Newhouse School and getting her M. F. A. in Writing and Literature from Emerson College her characters were more rounded and willing to stick around for an ending. However by then she was busy as her own main character with work, marriage, and four children. After much support and encouragement from her family; she has reunited with all of her old characters and a few new ones to finally publish her stories: complete with endings that hopefully her sister and you will enjoy.

Rochelle lives in Florida with her husband, children, and two dogs Truffles & Husker.
