Rosa Temple

Biography

Rosa Temple began writing romantic comedies and chick lit because of her passion for what she calls the 'early chick lit films', like: Sabrina, Barefoot In the Park and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

She honed her skills as a ghost writer, gaining experience writing romantic novellas, both sweet and on the slightly steamy side. In her notebooks, she constantly jotted down story ideas of her own and she eventually completed her first novella Sleeping With Your Best Friend and a full length novel, Natalie's Getting Married. This was followed up by Single by Christmas, published in 2016.

She has recently signed a three book deal with HQ Digital (Harper Collins).

Rosa is a Londoner and is married with two sons. She is a reluctant keep fit fanatic and doer of housework and insists that writing keeps her away from such strenuous tasks. She spends her days creating characters and story lines while drinking herbal tea and eating chocolate biscuits.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Being a writer of romantic comedies and Chick Lit I tend to read the more literary side of Women's Fiction when I can. Women are deep, well rounded people and we have lots of dimensions to us to explore. While it's fun to be engaged in something that is laugh out loud or light, it's nice to have a good cry or a case to resolve once in a while. So I like to curl up with a good thriller, mystery or historical romance by a female author. I do read other genres, too, and books by male authors, but I tend not to go for sci-fi or fantasy on the whole.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I think the biggest motivator was being able to be my own boss. But as an indie author I do appreciate that there is no way you can bring a book to your readers without a lot of help along the way. That means editors, proofreaders, book cover designers and all the great people you can bounce your ideas off.
Being an indie author does allow me to bring out a book when I want and not have to chase after the elusive agent or publisher willing to give me a chance. A lot of great writers fall by the wayside doing that.
Also, nowadays, readers have more respect for the indie author. There have been a lot of successes and people realise now that there is quality writing out there and support is good.
