Roses Wild is that: what if Arkansas had witches, werewolves, vamps, and fae running amok? It’s the story of Rose Carson, a cursed witch navigating life through poverty and loss. She’s not the usual heroine, but sometimes even the lowest of the low can rise to the occasion.

Nothing like curing a case of imposter syndrome like having your first book signing. Unfortunately, we are still in a pandemic and this is Washington state so attendance was low.
