Gina Rossi


I'm lucky enough to live on the sunny French Riviera where I write full time. While family and friends are my first love, I confess to being madly in love with Italy. I write romance, being an ardent fan of the happy ever after club, and enjoy weaving plots around real, everyday issues, so my characters don't waft off into dreamland. 'To Hear You Smile' is my first attempt on Smashwords and I'm eager to see if this is the way forward. Otherwise, I am traditionally published by The Wild Rose Press - my historical romance 'The Wild Heart' was released in June 2012, on Amazon and elsewhere in Paperback and ebook formats. My new contemporary romance, 'Life After 6 Tequilas' was published by ThornBerry (UK) in March 2013. I hope you enjoy the read.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
In South Africa, and I was lucky to live in both Stellenbosch and Cape Town, surely one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It has a mountain running through it, and perches between the mighty waters of two great oceans. On that southern tip of Africa, the landscapes are spectacular and the culture rich, colourful and turbulent. My first novel 'The Wild Heart' was set in the back country of the Cape of Good Hope c. 1800 - and, yes, as far as this story is concerned, the country of my birth influenced me deeply.
When did you first start writing?
I wanted to write all my life, and scribbled and journalled down the years with a few (failed) attempts at getting short story's published. But, in 2008, once my four children had grown up, left home and my brain slowly unscrambled, I started, in earnest, to write full-time. It's my job now.
