About Sierra Rose

I was born in 1974 in the Eastern Ohio Valley town of Martins Ferry where I lived until I was five then we moved to a very rural town in the same area. I’m the youngest of four children of a mill worker and a housewife but have 15 years between me and my closest sibling. I grew up with a vivid imagination, which seems to have become active at age four.
Having an imagination and a passion for reading, inventing little worlds and stories in my head seems natural. I began writing for fun mainly to survive reports I was making while being home schooled (illnesses kept me out so the school sent a teacher) and I wrote the most colorful but accurate history reports they’d seen. My passion for writing original pieces came at high school and I still have novels on paper to prove the start of this career.
I’m a 1993 graduate of Buckeye Local High School and still live in the same house I grew up in with my family of my mother and brother, plus three spoiled cats and a semi-fierce Beagle who likes to think he’s a Pit-Bull.
I still enjoy writing stories for fun that I can’t do anything with while I take a break from my original works. I mainly write action/adventure so my series of Celtic Evil, which is a paranormal romantic suspense series, is a slight break for me. I used to write poetry but can only do that in times of stress or deep emotional crisis.
I enjoy writing for the sake of telling a story. I write for myself and for others who enjoy the act of reading a good story. I hope to be able to tell many of those.

Well written, exciting dark fantasy. This second in the series doesn't have the rough edges of the first. The plot moves more smoothly and more characters that are likely to feature more in the remaining three novels are introduced.

Excellent story that pulls you in from the start. Richly detailed story with a storyline that keeps you reading. I love the good versus evil aspect, the universal struggle! The books makes you believe in magic and care about the family in this struggle. After reading about Ian, I had to go and read about Rourke, and look forward to the stories about the other brothers.

Review by: Jess C Scott on June 30, 2010 :
I really enjoyed the style of scene breaks in this dark fantasy novel. I thought the “scene settings” stated in bold (to mark a change of setting), added to the excitement and pace of the story. This technique enables the story to cover a lot of ground (quickly—personally, I’ve never been a fan of extremely long, rambling detailed descriptions of “the setting”), and creates a more ‘expansive’ feel to the geographical scope of the story. On a side note, these scene breaks remind me of certain scene break sections in Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, heh.

Back to Celtic Evil. For example (re: the scene breaks):

Fitzgaren, County Kerry, Ireland, four days later: (Chapter 2)
Trinity University, Ian Fitzgerald’s dorm: Dublin, Ireland: (Chapter 7)
Avebury, Great Britain: (Chapter 24)

There’s a skilful blend of modern-day and fantasy elements too, without a sense of the author “trying too hard” with the creation/execution of the story. The characters are relatable, and the relationship of the brothers showcases the strength of family ties (something which might be in short supply, the more technologically advanced the human species gets). I also enjoyed the ease and comfort the author has with writing about subjects/content that are related to magic/witchcraft—these vivid scenes enliven the interactions between the characters. I look forward to trying some of this author’s other books (like S.E.A.L. Team Omega, that falls into the adventure genre!).

Hi there,

I just read Celtic Evil, and found it to be a skillfully woven dark fantasy. The ease with which the author manages to keep so many main characters in character is astonishing. The characters are richly detailed. They interact in a believable manner. The complex relationship of the brothers reveals everything from tension to love, and there is no denying the underlying family loyalty.

The premise of Celtic Evil can be said to be good verses evil, but there is more. I don't want to get into spoilers, but I will say that I found the author's knowledge of her subject matter extensive. I've seen fantasy books where the authors didn't understand their subject matter well enough to help the readers understand the concepts that they were trying to convey. Mrs. Rose conveys the complexities of the fantasy aspects of her tale with ease and clarity.

Sierra Rose makes you believe in magic. She opens the imagination of the reader and fills it with magic. In the final analysis, that's what an author is supposed to do. The good ones can cause us to suspend our disbelief and make us believe their tales with the same wide-eyed wonder with which we enjoyed tales when we were children.

Have a great day,
Ricky

Review by: Magnolia Belle on March 24, 2010 :
Eighteen year old Ian Fitzgerald is the youngest of five brothers – brothers who are held in a bond of ancient Irish magic started with the union of a Fairie Prince and a human. The brothers’ destiny is to break the spell over their land of Warlock Sebastian, who is teamed with their grandmother, Kathleen Fitzgerald, an evil, covetous woman.

At University in England, Ian meets Molly, an American whose heritage is part Creole Voodoo Priestess and part Irish (with a thread of fairie in her lineage). He befriends the lonely girl, but refuses to get closer because he knows anyone near him is in mortal danger. Little does he know of her powers.

On a class field trip, when a classmate is attacked and killed by wolves, and Ian disappears, Molly looks to the school for help and finds none. Alerting her brothers, they turn to the family who raised Ian since the age of 3, when his parents died. Instead of finding aid from that quarter, the brothers discover a grim, horrifying truth which sets them on a twisted journey that intertwines the physical realm with the mystic, both good and bad.

Ms. Rose has a vivid imagination and seems well researched in Wiccan beliefs, so she paints pictures that stay with you long after you close the book. As the second in the series, it starts in with numerous characters familiar to readers of the first. The only caution I have for potential readers is the need for a firmer editor’s hand. This book was given to me for review and I’d recommend it for sixteen and older, due to language and adult situations.

Never be alone when reading ...

A magical story with good and evil. The author keeps you on the edge of your seat as you are wondering what is going to happen next. A very intriguing plot that is carefully woven together and keeps you guessing and wondering where the story will take you. The relationships of the brothers is filled with humor and friction and there is some romance as well. For anyone who likes some spine tingling, Celtic Evil is your choice.
