Who are you?

My name is Rosalyn Ransaw. I write middle-grade mysteries with twisty plots and diverse main characters. I have a B.A. from Columbia University in Political Science and currently live in Columbus, Ohio. When not writing, you can find me working my day job as a Digital Marketing Manager, scrolling through TikTok, or brainstorming my next book idea!

Do you have an agent?

I am represented by the wonderful Paige Terlip at Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Visit her website to see her most up-to-date manuscript wishlist and details on how to query her. 

What books have you written?

SMOKE & MIRRORS is my debut (first!) novel and it is a middle-grade mystery. You can learn more about it here

Are you writing anything else?

I'm working on a school project and want to interview you, how can I reach you?

Thanks for thinking of me! I have a lot of information about myself on my website, but if you have a specific question that isn't answered here, feel free to email me using the Contact form on my website (with your parent's approval!).

What are your favorite books?

Too many to choose! Some that I really love are The Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling, Coop Knows the Scoop by Taryn Souders, Pax by Sara Pennypacker and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

What do you like to do (other than writing and reading)?

When I'm not writing, I like to watch movies, try new taco restaurants, scroll endlessly through Twitter, watch YouTube, pet the world's cutest dog, and of course, buy more books!

What's your favorite food/sports team/etc.?

I love eating nachos and buffalo chicken dip while cheering on The Ohio State Buckeyes (O-H!). I like sunny summers, visiting the mountains in the fall and hot tubs in the snow.


Wait! I have another question about ___!
