Author Spotlight: C.J. Rose

Welcome to a new month. Can’t believe September is here already. Doesn’t even feel like August even finished. This year just keeps slipping by each day without notice. Today though I thought I would feature an author friend in her own Author Spotlight. Please check it out below and feel free to ask C.J. Rose some questions to get to know her better.

2Hi Everyone! 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.

Author Interview with Cassandra Jones

Hard to believe it is the last Tuesday of August already. Just in a blink it will be Christmas followed by a New Year. Anyway enough reminiscing…today I am sitting down with Crime Fiction Author Cassandra Jones. Hope you enjoy getting to know her as much as I did. Happy reading everyone :).

The Interview

Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am from a small town in West Virginia. I enjoy writing, reading, drawing a d working on the family history.

What genre do you write in? Why?
Mostly crime fiction. I love anything to do with crime! I also write horror, poetry, romance, and children’s.

What does your daily life look like? What do you wish it was like?
Right now I am usually at home doing lots of writing and looking for a job. I wish there were places here to get out and have fun. It’s a very small country town.

Do you have any strange quarks you do while you write a book?
I tend to make playlists for everything I write, even my poetry.

What is your writing process like?
I will start an outline, but after getting names and a plot, I tend to just write. I take notes and add things as I go.

What authors inspired you to write your own book?
Karen Young, Stephen King, and James Patterson

When you write your books do you go straight for pencil and paper or a computer? Why?
Usually pencil and paper. Right now I write on my phone so it seems to be easier. Plus I am an old fashioned kind of girl!

Who is your biggest support system in your life?
My best friend Selena.

Karen Young, Elle James, and Delores Fossen
