Colleen Rowan Kosinski and pet dove, BabyColleen Rowan Kosinski has always found joy in creating.  She loves to write and draw, and  received her B.A. from Rutgers University in visual art.

She rediscovered her passion for writing after many years as a successful, freelance fine artist.  She delved into writing when she had an idea for a screenplay.  She joined a critique group of successful and hopeful screenwriters and over the years wrote five feature length scripts.

Then she discovered children’s book writing and she knew she had found her passion.  She has created picture books–three with full dummies to review.  She has written middle grade novels and young adult novels. She also has many other works in progress.

Colleen is flexible and easy to work with and has never missed a deadline in her long career as a fine artist.

She belongs to her local chapter SCBWI critique group.  She attends as many conferences as she can and is a member of the SCBWI.

Colleen is represented by Mira Reisberg of Hummingbird Literary Agency.
