Author Interview: Ardent Rose

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

I have always loved to write and research, I guess when I was in high school it became apparent to me that I could write. But it wasn’t until about four years ago, I began to be serious about it.


Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)

Top Five: JR Ward /Karen Marie Moning /Kresley Cole /Laura Adrian/Gena Showalter


What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

I would say the people I meet online, usually looking for someone to listen to them. Many of my characters are fashioned after real people. I also might see a picture or hear a song, even nature provides a tremendous resource.


What genre(s) do you write?

I started out with Romantic erotica, then some Erotica, lately I have dabbled with fantasy and paranormal. Romance remains at the core of everything I write along with the naughty details that arouse the mind and stimulate the senses.


Do you have any current or future projects?

Yes, I am working on a novel titles Wild Horses. It is a romantic erotic story about a young woman who becomes stranded in a small old west type town and her hero is an older man. He lost his wife recently but is drawn to her.


I am also doing a weekly blog spot called The Tapestry. A mostly erotica story with some fantasy thrown in. A young woman visits Scotland and seeks the highlander who haunts her dreams.


Do you have an author website?

I am currently using my WordPress site as my author site and Facebook


Do you have any blogs?

The Ardent Rose


Where can people find your work?  (to purchase or just to read)

My books can be found on Amazon

Some are also available in paperback… Most titles are $0.99 or KU


If you could feature just one title, what would it be? 

Wow that’s like choosing one child, but I would say The Standridge Brides…it is the most current and it came out so amazing.


Do you have any pseudonyms?

Ardent Rose is my only pseudonym.


Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

I love to make jewelry, as a matter of fact, I make my own swag. So, every piece is original. I am an avid reader /reviewer of the Indie community and I also love coloring and making cards and gifts.


Tell us something interesting about yourself.

This may be quirky but I don’t drive. I have never been able to without becoming physically ill.

I also held my first real job at the age of 50.

My hubby and I love to go on cruises. We have been to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozmel, twice. We took a smaller cruise once to Mexico. But so far, the Key West/ Bahamas cruise which we have also taken twice is our favorite.


Is there anything else you would like to share?

I have always been a stay at home mom, den mother, scout leader, Sunday school teacher. I am the mother of two sons and two step-sons. I have been married twice, my husband for ten years. We became grandparents for the first time in 2013, and are about to welcome another grandson any day now and another grandchild in August.

Thanks for asking for my input I appreciate it so very much.
