Today I have a special treat. I am featuring fantasy/cookbook author C.J. Rose. Below you will find out some fun information about her and get to check out cook book. The awesome thing about this cook book is you can snatch it up for FREE on Kindle Unlimited. So, sit back and join the party. Lets get into this…
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I like the smell of cigars. Lol Other than that I am pretty boring.
What genre do you write in? Why?
I write fantasy fiction because I feel that everyone who reads a genre like this has the ability to get lost in a world that one could only dream of.
If you could change one thing about your life what would it be and why?
Funny enough, I don’t think I could choose just one thing, but at this point I am grateful to be alive and that alone is worth waking up for.
What is your writing process like?
I am super sporadic when I write. I found that it is easier for me to write when I feel like it instead of forcing myself to do it at certain times for certain lengths.
How did you come up with the story within your book? What inspired your creativity?
I was never a lover of books growing up. It was not until I discovered Harry Potter in my later years that I realized why i didn’t. It was because I was reading the wrong things. One I started reading books similar to that, the ideas just started flowing. I used to write poetry and song lyrics in high school, but this was a new adventure for me.
Who inspires you to write in your normal day life?
My family and friends are my main motivation. They want to see me succeed and I do not want to disappoint them.
When you write your books do you go straight for pencil and paper or a computer? Why?
I do a little of both actually. If I am at a computer I will go there first, but if I am not, then I will pencil and paper it. I have even been known to use a napkin or two once in a while.
Who is your biggest support system in your life?
People of every outlet.
Who are your top three favorite authors?
Edgar Allen Poe, Jane Austen, William Shakespeare
What should we expect from you in the coming months?
I have a few things in the works actually. I will be releasing book 3 in the series in the next few months. I am revamping the companion cookbook, and working on a follow-up novella to the series.
I am RoseAnn Labriola, penning as C.J. Rose. C. J. Rose resides in Central Illinois; originally from just south of Chicago. The passion for writing took root in high school where she began writing song lyrics and poetry. C.J. found her inspiration from other fantasy and YA novels such as Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, and more. On top of literature, Rose has a keen love for all things nerdy and sci-fi. On a quiet night, you can find her curled up with an episode of Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, and more. C. J. also belongs to a theatre organization KVTA. The devotion to musicals and theatre has led her to be a part of over 10 shows as an actor, and over 20 as a staff person. I am a hairstylist, with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. I have always loved writing, whether it was poems, song lyrics or stories. I decided it was time to sit down and put my thoughts to paper of a story concept I have played with for long time. In the process, it developed into the full-length version that I am proud to call my first published book, Bridge of the Gods – A Generation Son Chronicle. Now I have 3 novels in the series as well as a companion cookbook.
