Greetings from Marti Pieper in summery Mount Dora, Florida. I’m using the writerly summery as opposed to steamy or sweltering, of course. I do appreciate the daily offerings of sunshine and blue sky!
Today, I’m delighted to host author and editor Roseanna M. White on our CAN blog. She has lots of exciting news to share, so let’s get right to her interview.
Welcome, Roseanna! Could you please give us a brief introduction to your latest book?
Roseanna M. White
Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages during the Great War. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing historical novelist Roseanna M. White. I’ve enjoyed chatting with Roseanna at writing conferences and online, and I know you’ll enjoy hearing from her!
Roseanna, how many books do you have published? What are a few of your latest titles?
The Reluctant Duchess is my eleventh published title, following The Lost Heiress in the Ladies of the Manor Series from Bethany House. In September the series will finish with A Lady Unrivaled, and I also have a biblical-era Christmas story coming out the first of November, called Giver of Wonders. That will be a story of my Visibullis family, who readers met in A Stray Drop of Blood and A Soft Breath of Wind. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the privilege of interviewing historical fiction author Roseanna White. I’ve enjoyed getting to know her on line, and love her skill with words and her sense of humor.
Roseanna, how did you get into writing?
I’ve been writing since I learned how to put pencil to paper in primary school. It was a day when I was out sick with an ear infection that I realized I could entertain myself by scratching a story about a princess with a magical hair bow on some scrap paper–and there’s been no stopping me since!
A magical hair bow–I want one of those. How many books do you have published?
I now have four books available and another five contracted. My most recent are Love Finds You in Annapolis, Maryland, set in 1783, and the just-released Revolutionary War spy romance, Ring of Secrets.
How did you get your first book contract?
My first books were small press. WhiteFire Publishing is actually owned by my hubby, so we launched with my biblical novels to keep from experimenting on anyone else. Those titles have both done very well, but I kept pursuing contracts with the bigger houses as I worked for WhiteFire. Both my contract with Summerside and my series with Harvest House were the result of making a connection with the editors. Both actually rejected the first manuscripts they took to committee (both contemporaries), but liked my writing and asked to see other projects. The Lord definitely had His hand in that, leading me back to my first love–historical romance–in both cases.
