osa DeBerry King, an artist, a photographer, and a writer is a graduate of Cornell University in History of Art and Spanish Literature, and of the Harvard Graduate School of Education.


In addition to writing, her creative interests include classical drawing and painting of the human figure and equines. Rosa enjoys horseback riding and finds that painting is like dressage on canvas; dressage like a painting of  harmony on four hooves.


When she is not painting or writing in her studio, Rosa is usually in the barn. But wherever she is, her camera is within easy reach. Currently, Rosa is working on a collection of pictorial essays of the Virginia countryside.


Most recently, Rosa published her debut novel, House Key, which is featured on this site and available for purchase. Its sequel is in progress. . .
