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.
This is the first literary agent interview on The Rose Quinn Podcast. Exciting, right?
A couple of months ago, I made the jump and started to reach out to agents about talking with me for the podcast. I’ve had wonderful responses so Devin is the first of many agents that you will get to hear from on the podcast.
After therapy, when all of us were there. My daughter ignored me and when I went to give her a hug goodbye, she pulled away from me and scowled. She has been doing this every single time. But only when her mom is there.
So why would she do this?
I know the answer but it still stings.
Are you looking for your next great read?
Well, I’m excited to tell you that I’ve found it. Andrew Wilson’s latest book is another Agatha Christie gemstone. It is the perfect mixture of historical greatness and a mystery that you won’t be able to wrap your head around.
Oh man. This book had me hook, line and a little grossed out. But in a really good way, if that’s possible. Timothy Blake, the main character, has an interesting habit but regardless, you root for him. That is when an author has perfected their craft - when a character can do deplorable things but still be the hero in the story. We’ve all got a part of us that isn’t perfect, that makes bad choices but that doesn’t make us bad people.
Social media is great, right?
I mean, it has great parts. It has good intentions but we can get lost in the comparison, the opinions and the perfectly posed pictures. Social media has brought me in contact with tons of amazing people. It has given me writer friends that I wouldn’t trade for the world.
When you were younger did you ever have that dream of meeting a handsome prince and falling in love? Or did you dream of being a journalist who stumbled upon the greatest mystery of all time?! If you had either of these dreams - this book is what you need in your life.
