Hi all! *waves*
I’m Shelli Rosewarne and it’s really exciting being here today. I must admit that, probably like most people, I get a bit panicked when someone tells you to ‘talk about yourself’ but since I’m new here then I guess a little bit of an introduction is probably needed! I’m from Edinburgh, Scotland, which is a wonderful city, filled with fab historic buildings and, of course, with its very own castle, which I can dream about living in. One dayâ€¦ sighs.
The other great thing about Scotland is the rich variety of myths, legends, fairytales and folklore, which can provide a constant source of inspiration for a writer. My new release, Scarlett Legacy, is inspired by the fairytale of Little Red Riding Hood. Now, admittedly this isn’t a Scottish one, but it was one of my favourites as a child and it was such fun to be able to put my own take and interpretation on it. Now, in the original the Big Bad Wolf had rather a poor time of it, and since I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for a villain then in Scarlett Legacy my wolf, Damian, is allowed a little bit of redemption. Don’t get me wrong, he’s still definitely ‘bad’ just maybe in a slightly more *ahem* interesting way. Yup, this has turned into a fairytale that is definitely not for children!
I’m also a big fan of a heroine who can stand up for herself, and Natalia constantly made me laugh with her smartass remarks and her convoluted thought process â€“ hmm, nope no resemblance there at all! Well, they do say you put a bit of yourself in all your characters, though I rather wish I was as kickass as Natalia, and I definitely wouldn’t mind my very own Big Bad Wolf!
On that noteâ€¦ thank you very much for having me, and I really hope you enjoy my wolves!
Take care x
When Natalia rents a holiday cottage she is looking for peace and quiet. A place to reassess her life and recover from her failed relationship. Instead, she finds a man who turns her world upside down.
However, people and things are not as they seem, and Natalia begins to discover that legends are real and fairy tales have a basis in reality. As she grows closer to the enigmatic Damian, she finds herself tested as danger and passion go in hand in hand, and everything she thought she knew about the world will be questioned.
After years of waiting Damian had given up hope that he would ever meet his destined mate, and he certainly never expected her to be a sassy American who had no idea that his world even existed. Can he convince Natalia to believe in the impossible, and more importantly, can he protect her from those who seek to destroy his people?
Shelli Rosewarne had always had a dream in the back of her head about wanting to be a writer. However, like with so many things, life and paying the bills got in the way and she worked in various jobs from call centers, to shops, to offices. She eventually realized that life is too short not to try and follow your dreams, and has since had two stand alone novellas published with Breathless Press, along with several submissions in anthologies, and various works in progress in the pipeline. Yup, she’s having to pinch herself as well! She’s currently lucky enough to live in Edinburgh, where she can be constantly inspired by Scottish folklore and see castles every day. When not writing she loves reading, music and photography.
