I’m an aspiring author, lover of Diet Coke, bonus mama to two beautiful littles and reviewer of books! Rose Quinn Co started out as a book blog where I shared with you what I was reading and parts of my journey writing. Then, I met a handsome man and got married - that’s when my instant mom journey began and rocked my world. So, what is Rose Quinn Co now? It is a place for writers, mothers of any kind and lovers of books.
My husband and I are on a vacation in Utah and we thought it would be fun to go hiking with one of my childhood friends and her husband. We picked a hike that we’d done before and had thoroughly enjoyed. So why am I writing about this? It all went fine, right?
I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of Jason Allen’s debut novel THE EAST END published by Park Row Books an imprint of HarperCollins. This novel has lots of my favorite things: mystery, tormented characters, multiple POV’s and a surprising ending!
Are you ready to get to know, Meg?
I found her through Instagram and was so surprised and pumped when I saw that she became a stepmom to her three littles at the age of 21. She is now about 4 years into the game and I thought she’d be a perfect person to learn from and share her experiences.
Making these covenants is a big deal, a huge step on the path to living the life that Heavenly Father wants us to. But, on the flip side, once you do - you can’t deny that you weren’t made aware of what was expected of you.

My special guest for this episode is author Parker Peevyhouse. She has been writing since she was young and is the proud winner of a writing contest held and judged by RL Stine. I’m a little bit jealous. Our interview dives into her writing process, how she comes up with the amazing and unique ideas for her novels, her journey to finding an agent which shows that sometimes third time’s the charm.
So now, I try to not voice those comments when she’s around but really I shouldn’t be talking so negatively about myself at all. It’s a struggle, which I’m sure you’re all familiar with. But how do I change the way I see my body? Honestly, I don’t know. This is not a blog post with all the answers.
But here’s where I was getting lost. I was getting so frustrated if the kids didn’t do everything I said. I would get so frustrated with myself if I reacted in a not-so-great way to them misbehaving. I was getting so wound up, so tense about every little thing. Fighting over why my daughter needs to wear her jacket outside because it’s cold and even though she’s hot now, she’ll be cold once we walk out the door. Fighting with my son over why he needs to eat his lunch and just take one more bite.
