Rosemary-400Rosemary Counter is a writer, author and journalist based in Toronto. Since graduating from the University of Toronto with degrees in English and Women’s Studies, and a victory lap at Ryerson University in Book & Magazine Publishing, Rosemary’s been all freelance, all the time.

Her magazine work appears in everything from Maclean’s to ElleCanadian Living to Reader’s DigestStyle at Home to The New Yorker. She also pops up in ChatelaineVanity Fair, Today’s Parent, Bon Appetit, Cottage Life and Canadian Business, as well as The Toronto StarThe Globe & MailThe National PostThe Toronto Sun, The Washington Post and The New York Times. She also pens a monthly “Ask an Expert” columnist at The Globe & Mail’s Report on Business magazine.

When she’s not doing, she’s teaching, at Ryerson University’s Chang School of Continuing Education. Her class, The Art of Pitching, is a new addition to the journalism program, after she pitched it.

And in between deadlines, she wrote The Decadent Housewife: How to Live Lavishly on His Budget, a sassy aspirational lifestyle guide to idleness and luxury that’s nothing like her own life, she swears.
