I'm never confused. I work for them.
"I want to introduce you to Rosemarie Robotham. She is the editor who is helping me with my book. She does not blow her own trumpet so I will do it for her: She is amazing! She takes the chapters I have written, organizes and edits them and it is magical! I just got the first edit of what I've done so far and I could hardly put my own book down! She was an editor at Essence magazine for many years and is a published author several times over herself. She makes the process of writing a book joyful and easy and has had such a grounding, calming effect on me."

"Rosemarie is a gifted editor and writer. She has a deep history in both book and magazine publishing; she is a former senior editor at Simon & Schuster, where she developed and edited dozens of titles. And on top of all that, she's one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. Whenever I wrote for Essence, I absolutely loved being edited by her."
No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of Cicely Tyson's Just As I Am and founding editor of O, The Oprah Magazine
"Rosemarie worked with me on my book proposal for Your Time To Shine: Seven Keys To Unlock Your Creative Power, Eight Songs To Inspire Your Heart. I am beyond thrilled with the result. It has been a phenomenal experience to watch this book reveal itself. Rosemarie is wonderful to work with. I am blown away by how she has captured my voice. She has thoughtfully woven my uncomfortable stories and message together in a way that will touch hearts and shift lives. She is a kind soul with a beautiful gift."

"In addition to being a mighty fine storyteller and writer, Rosemarie is a spot-on, natural-born editor whom writers love and to whom writers can wholly entrust their copy. Unfailingly, she has refined and elevated the national magazine articles that she's assigned me, then edited. She is devoted to craft, and to ensuring that anything to which her name is attached is its optimum best. The sweeter part is that she also is positively one the nicest people I know. She is kind, temperate and full of grace."
