BOOKS: "I wrote my novel 'Stick Man' for my own catharsis after my Dad died," Rossi said. "I hope it brings healing for others who have experienced loss. My 2nd book, 'Create Your Life,' came about organically. Creative people contacted me asking for advice. I answered their questions in blogs. I had an "Aha!" moment when I realized I had pages of material answering these questions. I wrote more on the subject and organized it into 'Create Your Life.' "Sister Aimee: The Aimee Semple McPherson Story'" is my 3rd book, & contains my thoughts on the female evangelist. The book contains my screenplay."
