M. J. Rose grew up in New York City, where she read her mother’s books before she was allowed to. Rose graduated from Syracuse University, and then worked in advertising; she would serve as creative director at Rosenfeld Sirowitz and Lawson. She had an ad featured in New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. Her writing career began in the year 1998, when “Lip Service”, a novel that she self published was released. It was not bought by any publisher due to the fact that they did not know how to market a book that did not fit any one genre. She was able to sell copies through a website that she set up where readers could buy copies of the book there. After doing well in digital and psychical forms, it was chosen by a traditional publisher. This was the first time any novel had been self published book to do so. She believes that magic and mystery is everywhere in the world but people tend not to notice because they are too busy to. Rose has been on Fox News, Jim Lehrer NewsHour, and Newsweek. She lives with her dog and Doug Scofield (who is a composer).
