Rosemary Bach-Holzer (aka Wolf Black) has an award voted fortuitously for her by the readers of a fan-based retro gaming magazine for which she wrote humorous articles and reviews. The prize was a reluctant write-up by its editor who determined someone else should have won the accolade.
Happily he was alone in his conviction.
Rosemary claims to be an aficionado when it comes to the controversial illness/disability/condition known as ME or CFS. It's been her closest companion since 1989. But pity her not! Personally she's delighted she's competent in something.
Rosemary also writes under her maiden name Rosemary Bach and her mystery crime writer's pseudonym, Wolf Black.
A personal note to the reviewers.
5 JUNE 2015 Hello Kalle
Thank you very much, Kalle, for your brilliant review. I was notified only five days after the fact (which personally I think should have been accompanied with balloons and champagne) and have spent the remainder of that time trying to figure out the best way to show my sincere appreciation.
And not least to say thank you – you got it! So much so it’s like you crawled inside my head. Brilliant. That makes it all worth it. The whole point was the attention to detail - otherwise why bother? One should break new ground or at least leave a trademark and this is Wolf’s. It makes one feel they are living the moment. The reader is there with the character. And you got that! Thank you. I couldn’t have made up a more significant and wonderful review. And talking of which, yes, I do know a couple of persons but their reviews were not instigated by me. No bribes or cajoling, no, no. The short review from “Tom” is my ex-husband who is a man of few words but he genuinely loves Enigma.
Enigma took me six months to edit which I painstakingly did to the best of my ability and I do have a high standard so I make no apologies there. And like you, Kalle, I too have come across typos in the best of them. Thank you for pointing that out.
The clothes, props and the locations are all real. Even the weather is genuine and the daylight hours. I checked! The journeys I took myself via Google Map I literally drove each and every trip and if I came across a one-way road I detoured as one would in their vehicle. I wanted to make it as real as possible and it is so gratifying to learn you saw that.
Thank you, Kalle, from the bottom of my heart.

Wasn’t sure how to go about this but here I am to let you know my sincere thanks and appreciation bound your way in waves. I’ve been acknowledging your kind reviews and showing my appreciation over the past few months on my various blogs and websites and wanted to take advantage of the interview to thank you here on Smashwords.

What's the story behind your latest book?
You mean the story itself? It's a British crime mystery novel with an American thrown in to keep things interesting.
