Rosanne loves to write fiction (paranormal romantic suspense novels), nonfiction (communication and mental health), and blog posts that that inform and entertain at the same time.
Rosanne's major interests are writing, writing fiction and reviews of fiction, doing regular resistance and aerobic training, and practicing t'ai chi.
This undergraduate program involved studying the mechanics of Russian, including its grammar, word origins, and history, as well as the reading, writing, and speaking aspects of the language. Rosanne chose electives from other disciplines, such as calculus, biology, chemistry, psychology, and conversation courses in the French and Spanish languages.
This graduate program included courses in different approaches to psychotherapy; individual, group and multicultural counseling; identifying and diagnosing mental disorders; research and statistical measures; and an internship in a chosen mental health facility in the Albuquerque area.
Rosanne currently writes monthly blog posts and Facebook posts on addiction recovery and both physical and psychological aspects of fitness. During the 1990s, she wrote newsletter articles on marketing fitness/personal training services for the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). She is working on two books. One is about the psychological aspects of communication between parents and their young adult child. The second book is about healthy bread machine recipes.
Rosanne pursued training in business, and as a personal trainer and psychotherapist. This provided for being able to address the entire person when working with a client. She was able to work with clients on both the physical and psychological levels to achieve more permanent results. All her writing has been directed toward providing positive information and feedback for clients.
Rosanne has been both a manager and a consultant in at least six different fields of business: manufacturing, brokerage, insurance, personal training, mental health, and creative writing. Her writing projects include marketing and sales proposals, brochures, newsletters, business letters, insurance authorization requests, job descriptions, and performance evaluations.
Rosanne was a Team Leader/Therapist for a non-profit agency specializing in severely mentally-ill adult clients. Writing included intake assessments, session progress notes, insurance authorization requests, treatment plans, reports as needed by the Clinical Director, and justifications for various levels of care as required by other agencies.
Rosanne writes descriptions of products so buyers know what they're getting. Product descriptions can range from humorous, that capture a product in a whimsical light, to factual, which tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Rosanne has written blog posts 300 - 1600 words long on addictions, bollards, dentistry, dump trucks, event planning, mental health, recovery, trauma, and some other topics. She enjoys simplifying, but not dumbing down, complex or technical information to make it understandable to everyone.
No matter what the topic is, Rosanne writes Facebook or LinkedIn posts that are short and informal enough to entice a reader into wanting to know more. These posts can stand alone, or link to blog posts or articles about the subject.
Rosanne has written the first three books of one fiction series and the first book in a second fiction series. Another work-in-progress is an ebook on becoming a better parent to a young adult child.
Rosanne creates press releases with the journalism inverted-pyramid style of information organization. Too much copy? No need to rewrite, simply delete as much as you need to, starting with the final paragraph of the piece. Easy! Not enough copy? She'll write more.
Rosanne can create PowerPoint-type slides for presentations of any length. She can accommodate business, informal, promotional, or technical writing styles.
