Rosanne Limoncelli was born in Middletown , Connecticut and has also lived in North Haven, Connecticut and Morristown New Jersey. She has enjoyed reading and writing her whole life, especially mystery/thrillers, and her first published story was in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine.
While working on a story, Rosanne has to forbid herself from reading so she can get some work done. When she finishes a project, she may consume several books obsessively, usually at the expense of getting enough sleep. She is often found cooking, skating, and practicing yoga. Rosanne lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and daughter, with whom she loves doing everything.
Rosanne is the Director of Production for Film and New Media at the Kanbar Institute, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She received her BFA from the Department of Film & TV at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and her PhD in Teaching Reading, Writing, and Media from NYU’s Steinhardt School. She has been teaching writing and filmmaking to students and professors since 1989, and has served as a consultant in the area of teacher education to high schools, colleges and universities.
