My dad and I had an ideal father-daughter relationship. He was my hero, and I was Daddy’s little girl. I didn’t fear him, but I feared disappointing him.
About Maria Rossi
Maria Rossi lives in Dahlonega, Georgia, with her husband, an active-duty soldier, and their daughter, Kylie, along with their two dogs. Maria has always had a passion for writing, but it became an outlet for her after the death of her father, Army Maj. Gen. John Rossi, in 2016. John Rossi cared deeply for his soldiers and their families, and Maria hopes to carry on that legacy by working with organizations that support those who have served. She is a 2023 War Horse Writing Fellow.
