Rosa del Duca is a writer, journalist, teacher and musician. A California transplant, she grew up in Montana, where she joined the National Guard at 17 years of age. Four years later she was fighting to declare herself a conscientious objector. That tumultuous time is the subject of several published essays and a memoir she is seeking representation for.
On the fiction side, Rosa is polishing her first novel, which focuses on a television reporter yanked from the fluff beat and assigned to a disturbing kidnapping case in the Central Valley.
