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.

Stained Glass

For years, I’ve been fascinated by stained glass windows. Other than the obvious reasons for their appeal—the way they add an interesting element to a room and how they change colors according to the light shining in from outside and that they have limitless possibilities for artistic expression—I also appreciate how difficult they can be […]

Authentic

When we remodeled our master bathroom several years ago, I decided we needed to have some kind of clock in there to let my husband and I know if we were on schedule while getting ready in the morning. I found a large clock on clearance at Hobby Lobby that would do the job, so […]

No more playing

On Saturday, I helped my husband dismantle the wooden play set our kids no longer use. When we first bought it, a dozen years ago, it was our daughters’ favorite spot. It had swings, monkey bars and a trapeze bar with rings where I showed them how to “skin the cat.” (That’s where you hold […]
