Gina Rossi


I'm lucky enough to live in the gorgeous Channel Islands, where I write full time. While family and friends are my first love, I confess to being madly in love with Italy, winter, crimson roses and leather! Chocolate and wine go without saying ;). I write romance, being an ardent member of the happy ever after club, and enjoy weaving plots around real, everyday issues, so my characters don't waft off into dreamland. In addition to being published on Smashwords I am traditionally published by The Wild Rose Press. I very much hope you enjoy reading my books.

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.
