There is no better way than spending New Year’s Day cuddled up under a blanket, favorite fur baby near by, and a nice cup of tea or adult beverage on hand. Personally, I think reading and great books saved me this year. So, I want to pass along what I’ve found, and give you a chance to read a great new author.
Her name is Rose Walken and she’s written a fabulous CIA mystery romance called “The Raven’s Call”. Rose Walken is a speed-reading, coffee-loving, book-addicted East Coast romance author. She is also a mother of two angelic (while sleeping) children, a brother-sister pair of rescue kitties, and a loving, supportive partner. I had a chance to talk to Rose about her new book. She shares her favorite reading memories and what future projects she has in store for us.
1) What is your favorite memory from reading as a child?
Rose Walken: It is how quickly I would become immersed in the story. My first love was unicorns and horses. When I read books about them, like The Last Unicorn, Black Beauty, or Misty of Chincoteague Island, I imagined myself leaving my everyday life behind and living inside the story. It still happens, although the type of books I read has changed.
2) Who was your favorite author and how did they influence you?
Rose Walken: My favorite romance author has always been Jude Deveraux. There are never more than a few sentences that I am aware of reading in her books. She pulls me into the story right away, and it is something I strive for in my writing.
3) What is writing to you in one sentence?
Rose Walken: Writing is a voice for the myriad of emotions, thoughts, and ideas in my head.
“The Raven’s Call” is an CIA mystery romance that will pull you in and not let you go. Mitch has spent nineteen years with the international elite. But nearing retirement, he decides to do one last mission—and its personal. But when Victoria McKinley walks into his life and becomes his unwilling accomplice, there’s not much he can do but reel her in, use her and carry out his duty. But the difference with this mission and all the others—he doesn’t want to walk away from her. Will he find a way to survive the mission with her? Or will he have to sacrifice his new relationship to save them both?
“The Raven’s Call” is available at several online retailers through this book link.
