Interview with Rhonda Rose

What are your five favorite books, and why?
My five favorite books are (in no particular order):
Margaret Laurence, The Stone Angel; Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights; Hans Christian Andersen, Fairy Tales and Stories; Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind; and The Bible.
These are my favorite books because they all mark turning points and growth in my life in one way or another.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are my inspiration. I love it when people share their stories with me and I can facilitate God's work in their life.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on two more projects at this time. One is a series of children's books that inspire healthy eating as well as good values and manners in children, helping parents and caregivers with the learning process in a fun and exciting way. The second is a novel that explains how powerful our bodies really are.
How do you approach cover design?
I think about the visual message I want my readers to take away with them, including colour. I relate the cover to the content in the book.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read all by myself was by Jon Stone, based on a Sesame Street character, called The Monster at the End of This Book. I was in grade one and I was able to read the words so well and with such animation, the teacher asked me to read it in front of the whole class during story telling time. "I was sooooo embarrassed!" Well, actually not, I loved it, but those are close to Grover's final words in the book and as I read them, I covered my face with my free hand, demonstrating embarrassment. Such drama, and the class loved it!
