Books We Love's Tantalizing Talent ~ Author J.Q. Rose
After selling our floral and garden center business, my husband and I sold our home and took off in a fifth-wheel camper to see the country. We lived full-time in the 32 foot trailer enjoying all the comforts of home, but not the hassle of being home-owners. We visited areas of the US we always wanted to see and worked at many mission projects.
During this time, I finally achieved my dream of being a writer. I sat at the small table in the camper and wrote freelance articles for newspapers, RV magazines, and online magazines. Seeing my byline on the articles made me happy.
I became accustomed to change while moving around the country in our RV. After ten years of non-fiction writing, I was ready for a change in my writing career. After reading Sue Grafton and Janet Evanovich mysteries filled with great storytelling and humor, I was inspired to write my own mysteries.
In my latest mystery from Books We Love Publishing, I relied on my background as a funeral director’s daughter to create Deadly Undertaking, a romance/mystery/paranormal story with quirky characters in small town situations.
That old adage—“The only thing constant in life is change” is one that’s true. I embrace change and the possibilities that come with it. It keeps life, and my writing, exciting and invigorating.
