Did you hear that Rose Cooper’s first book, Gossip from the Girls’ Room, was described as “humorous,” “bubbly” and “wonderfully entertaining” and as perfect for fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries series? A self-taught artist, Rose’s artwork can be seen in galleries and at art fairs and festivals. Writing for children gives her the perfect excuse to keep in touch with her inner child and never grow up. She lives in Sacramento, California, with her husband, Carl, and their three boys.

School Library Journal, February 2012:
"The lightweight plot skips along steadily, and the black-and-white sketches on lined notebooklike paper add appeal. Cooper’s uncanny ability to think, illustrate, and blog like a middle schooler shines through in Sofia’s charming, comical voice. Fans of Jeff Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series (Abrams) as well as other diary-related books should find this one especially attractive, while the short, easy format will appeal to reluctant readers."
