About me

Occupation Writer
Location Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Introduction Welcome to Rosebud’s Blog! I started writing weekly columns in college, and while it has been a few years, I never lost the itch. I gathered a collection of ideas together and strung them together in my first book in 2004, “Go Forward, Support! The Rugby of Life.” Now I am writing again. ANNOUNCING: My new book, The Happy Clam, just published July 2020 as the world teetered on the brink of a global pandemic. Its messages of hope and happiness are needed now more so than ever before. Available at Belmont Books, Brookline Booksmith, and Concord Bookshop; online at and (Gainline Press, ISBN 978-0-9708528-2-3). Eric Hoffer Book Award 2021 Category Finalist. Each blog is a contemplation of everyday life, and what can be learned from it. I believe two things: Everything happens for a reason and there is something to be learned from every experience. Follow me on Twitter @GainlineRS. "Go Forward, Support! The Rugby of Life," is a philosophical contemplation of rugby and the meaning of life. With some photos, recipes, poems, and quotes thrown in, it is in essence "a love song to rugby" (Gainline Press, ISBN 978-0-9708528-1-9).
