About Rose Young

I was born in the wilds of Maine with nature as my teacher. My background in plants and horticulture is in my character Roxanne Samson, an expert gardener. Roxanne utilizes her plant knowledge to research poisonous plants, and she learns from Georgi Algarve, the flamboyant wine aficionado all about vineyards, and wine.
I live in a historic area of Connecticut, and so I include bits of New England history and architecture into the mystery as we travel through posh vineyards and the antithesis, a labyrinth of city streets. To assure authentic details on wine, I visited many vineyards and experts to learn about wine and food pairings. For an exciting scene, I interviewed 'those who knew' about the official Presidential visits to the Coast Guard Academy.
Captain Griswold travels by ferry across Long Island Sound to Orient Point and back, and so did I many times to track my characters and visit the vineyards. I love doing the research to explore the story and my characters so I may enhance their personalities and add to their knowledge.
Inspirational, educational, and dynamically is how I like to entertain every reader. I look forward to hearing from you with your reviews. Thank you for connecting with me!
All the Best to You,

Very well written. I enjoyed the well developed characters and was thoroughly entertained by unexpected events as the story unfolded. I like cozy mysteries and I like police procedurals. This book has elements of both styles with a little extra. Recommended.
