Cathleen Elise Rossiter


After thirty-two years in the corporate sector, Cathleen Elise Rossiter finally heard and heeded the call to be a writer. As founder and CEO of Bespoke Writing Solutions, Cathleen combines her extensive training and experience in the art of developing superior client relationships with her passion for language, and its power to connect souls. In doing so, Cathleen designs and produces for her clients custom marketing systems that connect with prospective clients on a deep and genuine level. This deep connection elicits an average response rate double the industry standard.

Cathleen continuously searches for the heart of the matter, the lesson to be learned, the interesting tidbit that sets her off on a journey of discovery. Apart from getting out in the world to get to know its inhabitants and treasures, her favorite method of travel is via the creative endeavors of others as expressed in the formal term, Art. It is through art that one soul cries out to the world in its attempt to tell a story or reveal a truth. For Cathleen, each work of an artist is Scheherazade filled with 1,001 stories.

A native of New England, Cathleen loves spending time at the ocean, in her garden, visiting the multitude of museums available to her, traveling the world, writing in the myriad coffee shops ​that populate the wold ​absorbing and recording the ever-changing whirl of life being lived to which she is made privy.
Cathleen's writings may be found in her forthcoming books, ​​The Rossiter Review, due out early in 2016, and The Loyalty Advantage Nexus: 9 Simple Keys to Unlock the Value in Your Clients (and Employees) , due out at the end of 2016 as well as her blogs

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in coastal New England so we spent considerable time at the beach, even in winter. The East Coast is quite a contradiction with its high-energy, uptight cities and its relaxed, summer-at-the-shore communities all within short distances from each other. These mentalities have given me a great balance of my craving for being in the middle of life while also needing space to myself. Traditionally, Bostonians are naturally shy and reserved until you earn their trust. If a stranger passes us on the street, in a hallway, or any other situation, our instinct is to look to the ground for fear of rejection. If the stranger greets us and we feel safe, we light up and are then a warm and welcoming people. Because of this reservedness, I am a consummate observer and ponderer.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is my oxygen. I prefer to write by hand with a great pen. Like my choice of coffee receptacle, the perfect pen for any given writing task depends upon my mood and the feeling I want to evoke from my writing, though generally a fountain pen. There is something truly wonderful about writing with a fountain pen. Getting caught up in the energy created by the nib scratching furiously across the paper; seeing the words actually formed on the page after the thoughts have been rummaging around in my brain for some time is a truly satisfying endeavor. The greatest joy I derive from writing is the aspect of painting and sculpting with words. Like Michelangelo with his paint and marble, writing is physical work that translates a personal, intimate vision or feeling into something breathtaking, something that profoundly effects other human beings until the end of time.
