The Author


Rosemarie Montefusco is a writer and artist from New York. She began writing A Moonsepent Tale in 2001, inspired by our own changing world, her growing love for nature, and her unhappy detachment from it in the chaos of everyday life. She is a pescetarian and wine lover, with a perfectly healthy crush on BBC naturalist, David Attenborough. Her hobbies include gardening, hiking, history, crochet, botany and entomology– especially lepidopterology.

While not close enough to the ocean for her own tastes, she currently lives in a small cottage with a black cat.
