Rosie Sampson is a twenty-three-year-old writer from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. She has had her works on writing websites since she was sixteen, has won several contests, and been featured in a couple of online magazines. She started creating stories before she could even hold a pencil, and has spent the majority of her life writing to both entertain and terrify her seven siblings.
Letters to Ricky veers off a little from Rosie's favorite genres of horror and paranormal, as a series of letters written by a twelve-year-old girl to her older brother. The story follows the writing of Penny Harris as she grows up from a misinformed kid being bounced around foster homes, to a strong, intelligent young woman trying to protect her brothers from the harsh realities of the world.
