"RRRoze is an enigmatic writer; his world tantalizing, giving new breath to the post-apocalypse; full of angst, tensions, and questions of truth. It's a tease to the reader's mind, engulfing you more with every passing word." - Alexandria Martinez, author of The Zephyllwen Chronicles
"He's an anarcho-desperado. A covert renegade waging a silent propaganda war against the shadow government to rescue the mass consciousness from the hypnosis devices." - Stefan Lebron, Singer Of Hoohak Flower
"Rose is a breathless storyteller with the heart of a poet, who delivers unmatched ferocity with words unafraid, audacious, and wild. His stories fly out of him as if effortless and by necessity. He captures fleeting details almost fiendishly and allows no textbook standard to gnaw at his originality. Idealistic, fanciful, and impervious to the prodding fingers of the culture which begs one to conform, it is as if Rose is compelled by some mysterious and silent fire lit beyond the ether. In a world of cheap tricks, Rose is a true visionary."
Rose began writing in 2004 and published E.O.N.S with publishamerica.lame in 2005. In 2012 and 2013 Black Rose Writing first pressed both So It Ends & So It Begins. His titles Jesus Christ!, Before The Aftermath, and Vaguely Vivid are always available for free as E-books through Smashwords.com or for sale in print from Amazon.com. In 2014 Rose published Tai/Dice using the moniker Riqi. Look out for hidden surprises and much more to come in the future.

RRRoze reports to furtherance in the effort to put some definition into the inchoate forms we encounter in our unconscious on the journey to self discovery. He seems to accept the questioning and the doubts of the meaning of life as part of the struggle one faces when delving into the mysteries.
He is very disciplined in his discourses. The syntax and grammar is perfect and the philosophy chimes truth.
He is sincere and believable in his expressions of love and concern for humanity. He is a reformer but does not vent self-righteous sanctimony nor does he moralize in his proscriptions for a dying civilization and a doomed mankind. A tendency toward nihilism come forth in his prevision of a dystopic future after the inevitable apocalypse, yet he maintains a conviction that it will be as meant to be!
Of interest is the recurring imagery of the feminine which I take to be a symbolic representation of the anima archetype. In an amusing way she might grate upon him but he obviously recognizes her as the source for his inspiration and as the noble qualities of Self and thus he holds her dear.
Never self indulgent, always honest with himself, his writing is atypical of the artifice of modern literary tastes where mediocrity and duplicity are given precedence over directness of expression of the true conditions of the world. RRRoze does himself credit by addressing the way things are unflinchingly.
