My banner is of a set of rose bushes in my back yard. They are getting ready to be transplanted to make way for a deck, but I'm definitely NOT getting rid of them. All of these pictures are of roses in my yard.
Anyway one day I happened upon the saying above. "Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful that thorns have roses." Alphonse Kerr I've seen it attributed to others, but because I first saw it with Mr. Kerr's name, I've left it.
I knew when I started writing that I would write romance. It was a given for me. I'm sure other writers of other genres felt the same way about what they write.
Roses have long been the universal flower of love. And yet, love does not come without hurt.
So I found a title: A Bed of Roses (all the good stuff) ... Thorns Included (and the bad stuff) all thrown together in life, and in books.
It's about being real, showing my imperfections, sharing my joys, and my sorrows. It's about life. And maybe, just maybe I can help someone else along the way.
