About Abby Rosser


“If a brown-haired, brown-eyed middle child of average height and intelligence living in the exact geographic center of Middle Tennessee has a story inside of her, then no one is too boring.” This is my mantra.

I love a good story and if you sit with someone long enough, you’re bound to hear one. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been creating stories in my head. I like true stories bound up with history and family lore. I also like tales spun from nothing but an author’s imagination with lands and people unheard of until laid down on paper (or laptop). Whether it’s a fantastic adventure with talking animals and magical beings or a quiet conversation on a dark back porch, there’s a story.

For more than a decade, I’ve lived in Murfreesboro, Tennessee with my husband and kids. (At this point, most authors’ bios include information about their pets. I, on the other hand, have none so I can’t claim: “She lives with her husband, kids, and three Bullmastiffs—Dickens, Poe, and Twain…” Alas. I may never achieve official author status without them.) When I’m not driving in the soccer carpool or helping with the PTO or rocking babies in the church nursery, I’m writing. It’s my most favorite thing to do and I feel blessed to be able to share my stories with readers.

Happy Snow Day


Abby teams up with illustrator Shannon Watson to bring you Happy Snow Day!

There once was a little boy who wanted to see snow. Actually, his birthday was coming up and snow was all he asked for. The boy was born in a place where it never snowed and now that he was living with his new family, he wanted to experience everything. So he waited and waited and waited. Will he get to see snow? Will his birthday wish come true? Some things are worth waiting (and hoping and wishing and praying) for.

Famous

When I was 7 or 8 years old, my sisters and I were in Davis-Kidd Bookstore in Nashville, shopping with a couple who were friends of my parents. A woman approached us and asked the couple our ages and commented on our general cuteness. Although the woman might have seemed like any ordinary Nashville-area resident […]

Tunneling back

Since November 9, 2019 marks the 30thanniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, this moment in history has reappeared for a little while in the news. I was a teenager when it came down, but I realize now that I knew very little about this wall. I knew it was symbolic of the horrors […]

Soccer practice

Like a lot of parents, I spend quite a bit of time driving to, sitting during and driving home from ball practice. I could try to figure out how many hours are spent in this way, but that would be depressing, like when my twin daughters were newborns and I calculated how many diapers I […]
