Love Waits in Unexpected Places
Introduction
I love descriptive words and choose them as carefully as an artist might choose a color. My active imagination compels me to write everything from children’s stories to historical nonfiction. As a persnickety leisure reader, I especially enjoy novels that feel like they were written just for me. It's hard to explain, but if you've ever read one, then you’ll know what I mean. I tend to sneak symbolism and metaphor into my writing. You might say it's a game I play with myself when I write, and I love when readers email to say they've found something. I’d like people to feel my stories were written just for them, for that’s the truth. These hidden insights are my gift to my readers.

Totally frustrated trying to figure out Romance Wiki. Why is this thing so hard?? http://www.romancewiki.com/User:Rose_Anderson  Is it supposed to say USER next to my name? Anyone know if I've done this correctly or not? If so, please please please advise.

What does an immortal Native American shaman do when the grave he’s sworn to watch over for all eternity disappears under urban development?
His purpose of guarding his wife’s burial mound is gone, Ashkewheteasu seeks to end his immortal existence. In his despair, he assumes the form of a wolf and steps in front of a moving car and into the life of Dr. Olivia “Livie” Rosalini. The veterinarian saves the animal’s life, and in the process saves the man within. Unbeknownst to Livie, the dog she’s taken into her home and grows to love is a magical being seeking to win her heart as a man. While Ash is learning a new world filled with new love, friendship, and happiness, an old menace makes plans to steal it all away; just as he had 3000 years before.

From my vantage point as fiction creator, I find killing beloved characters to be so hard. These people who live on the page don’t necessarily spring forth from a writer’s head fully formed. Oh sure the concept of them often does, but their personalities don’t always arrive until later. In my experience, they slowly reveal themselves and I grow to love them as we become acquainted. At least that’s how it is for me.

They’re my lovers and friends, they’re my desires and dreams, my secrets and aspirations. They’re also my laughter and joy, my doubts and pain. My characters are the sum of me, and then some. Yes my bad guys, as dark and murderous as they are, are me too.

Yep, I’ve a lot of skeletons rattling around in the closet of my imagination. It’s a good time of year to acknowledge them!
