Rosemarie Fitzsimmons, Portrait Writer. I write uplifting and true stories about God's touch on peoples' lives.
Rhode Island native, retired US Marine. Rosemarie has more than 35 years of experience in writing, editing, public relations, and storytelling. Worked as a correspondent and community relations liaison for the Marine Corps, then left to edit for USMC Intelligence. In 2014, Rosemarie left the 9-5 scene to write for God. Her newly released book, Caged Sparrow, a true story about Jesus' power even in prison, represents the first fruits of that journey. She currently writes for Good Catch Publishing, interviewing people whose lives were touched by God and telling their stories.
